I am really, really excited to be charting on BIllboard again. As an indie band, we are super fortunate to have the support of our listeners who give us lots of amazing feedback and support. It’s a wonderful community. But it’s very rare for us to get recognition from anything mainstream, so hitting the charts is a rare and beautiful moment we get to point to and say “hey, we’re a big deal!”
