“It’s been 5 days and I’m still having a having a hard time catching my breath since we released ‘Figure Me Out’. I’m speechless. I guess when I wrote this song at my parents house I never imagined this response from fans, friends, strangers, and other musicians I love and respect. It feels so, so good to be back,” Brian shared.
He continued, “You know what feels EVEN BETTER? Playing new songs live. It’s been a while, but today I’m proud to announce that we are going back on tour! The #STORIESFORMONDAYWORLDTOUR begins April 13th at House of Blues in Anaheim, CA and then takes over the United States. UK….we will see you in May. I’m so excited. Tickets will be on sale Friday, 10am local time. The rest of the world, stay tuned because we will see you soon too. This is gonna be the fun year. We are here.”
“I almost gave up on music last year. Then I wrote this song ['Figure Me Out']. It’s funny how the most important ones come to you when you least expect it,” Brian shared about the lead single.
He continued, “I was hiding away at my parent’s house in Arizona, afraid that none of the songs written for the record were cohesive and that we were missing something important, and then one night after midnight I wrote this song all alone on the piano in the house I grew up in. It was cathartic and it changed the whole album process for me. This song made the other ones make sense.”
“Speechless right now. Can’t keep up with your responses. I’m so overwhelmed. Thank you. #StoriesForMonday,” Brian shared on Twitter. “Big shout out to @stephen_james and @thejohnset. They produced this record and brought this song to life in a way I couldn’t have imagined.”
Stories For Monday will drop on April 1st.

Brian shared of the record the track is off of, “This is our fifth year as a band and our third album, but it feels like the first all over again. It’s liberating. I feel like we’re starting to go in the direction we’ve always dreamt of. We can’t wait for our fans to experience this album!”
