Good Night Glamour, Good Morning Disaster - 2008

The band's first album was recorded at Near Studios in Long Branch, New Jersey. The album was mixed and produced by long-time friends Bart Schoudel and Ron Haney of the band The Churchills. The album was recorded in a span of one and a half months in November/December 2007. Late December 2007, the album was mastered by Chris Ghehringer at Sterling Sound in New York City.

In April 2008, the album was officially released. At first, the album was only available at their live performances, but soon was quickly picked up by the teenage rock/pop culture store Hot Topic. The CD was then only available in the New York/New Jersey region, but has spread since then to different stores throughout the country. Today, the album is available everywhere in the world through iTunes and Amazon.com.

Support for the album started immediately after its release with several east coast tours as well as a nationwide tour in April 2008. Through the Summer into the fall of 2008, the band continued touring and doing festivals. Some shows on these tours included opening slots for The Ataris, Go Radio, The Teenagers, and Eve 6. The band also took part in a very high profile series of shows in front of thousands on South Padre Island, Texas for the Blender Sessions Spring Break concert alongside other great artists such as Cartel, Forever the Sickest Kids, and All Time Low.

December 2008, the band found themselves back in the studio recording a cover of The Monroes single What Do All The People Know? as well as re-recording several songs off of Good Night Glamour, Good Morning Disaster. This time, they recorded and mixed with Kenny Gioia in Queens, New York.
