To further celebrate, the band will be offering up a gift bag at this show with a copy of its Truth on Tape album, a poster and, here's the kicker, a bonus disc called the Birthday EP (for obvious reasons). The new disc, which Hamilton says will only be available at this one show, features an introduction from labelmate and tourmate Bob Schneider, three acoustic versions of Truth on Tape songs, an unreleased demo called "Have I Failed You," and a live take of "Sad Song," which the band recorded during a show in New York City.
Explains Hamilton of the release: "It's our small way of saying thank you to a home town that's always been incredibly good to us."
Everyone together now: "Awwwwwwwwwwwww!"
