The brief trailer has footage of the some in-studio work overlaid with each band member offering their summaries of the forthcoming release and what it means to them, as well as lead vocalist / lyricist Dan "Soupy" Campbell explaining the meaning behind the title. Apparently the album was written and recorded as the third part in a trilogy about growing up. In summarizing the theme, Campbell explains, "I wanna be remembered for more than this. I think we all do. See, people say the greatest generation has come and gone, but they're wrong. They haven't seen what we're capable of." If the concept of this band releasing new music in a continuation of their two previous, and mind-blowing, releases, then it should suffice to mention that, best of all, the end of the trailer teases a clip of the opening track There, There. It's a short, but incredibly sweet, and well worth watching for.
In addition, the band has updated their website, listing future tour dates and a new layout. As of this time, however, preorders are still listed as "coming soon," but this band always has some pretty sweet vinyl presses and merch bundles, so stay tuned for information regarding that in the (hopefully) near future.
