"Affection" 

Our new single "Affection" is a cover of a Steve Van Zandt song that's long been a favorite of ours. Van Zandt recorded it with his band The Lost Boys. Their album was never released but "Affection" was used in an episode of The Sopranos and made its way onto one of the show's soundtrack albums.

It also has one of the best lines ever in a rock song.

We used to play this song as an encore back when we could do encores. We started recording it back in November when there were cars lined up at food banks all across the country, and we couldn’t help thinking how the three verses we always sang speak to our world just as well as Woody Guthrie’s. 

Of course it took us so long to get the song finished that food banks are no longer in the news, though they should be.
