In anticipation of its next release, the band plans to continue offering free downloads through its Backstage giveaway program. The first of those downloads, a brand new song called, "Always the Same," which was recorded at Immersive Studios in Boulder, will be made available at the beginning of February, followed by a free show at Moe's Barbecue on Friday, February 27.
