“We are SO EXCITED about our new music! Our goals for 2022 are clear: release a full-length album full of meaningful songs and hit the road when we can,” Caleb said, with Joshua adding, “Write, record, release, repeat! And of course tour; We look forward to playing for our amazing fans and connecting with them when we can.”
