Ferguson says of the record, “I'm proud of the arc of the evolution of the band and I think it's a natural progression of song writing. We still wear our influences on our sleeves, but it's definitely music for now.”
The band will perform I Got Burned with Rogers on ABC's Gordon St Tonight Wednesday 4 April.
