 Critical Acclaim
As of mid-2009, the band is on tour in Europe and will return to the U.S. in late 2009 for a national headlining tour. They are well known for the use of drugs whilst making their first album, though in a recent interview  lead singer Christopher suggested this is now a more occasional indulgence.
