In recent years they have twice appeared on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, had songs featured in TV shows (Sons Of Anarchy, Human Target) and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for a diverse list of artists such as The Flaming Lips, Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Johnny Lang and many more.
