Guitarist and lead vocalist Wesley Schultz had this to say about the bands new album, 'Cleopatra', that will be released April 8th, their second for Dualtone.  “We took the same approach this time as we did with the first album, recording demos in a small house we rented in the original Denver neighbourhood where we first moved.
