The band supported the album by sharingthe stage with bands like Hot Water Music, The Get Up Kids, Saves the Day, Dashboard Confessional, Strike Anywhere, The Anniversary, RxBandits, and Avail. An interview in The Austin Chronicle had this to say about the hometown band; "fans take their songs to heart because theyrecognize themselves in the experiences Stella relates in her lyrics. By the same token, they attract the sort of listeners for whom music isabout something beyond just being popular, sitting at the coolest table in the cafeteria, or having the current flavor of the week cued up on youriPod..

Musically, the band have a knack for crafting empowering songs based on Stella's own experiences. Personally, they happen to be one of themost likeable bands. "Of the five years we've been in this band, there've been so many different trends that have come and gone," saysHawkins. "There's something to be said for just being yourself and doing what you love because you love it. I think kids can see past it. Theycan see that we're just who we are." « hide
