Along the way, they’ve architected a catalog of smashed highlighted by triple-platinum anthems “Bang!” and “Weak” as well as the double-platinum “Burn The House Down” and platinum singles “100 Bad Days,” “Sober Up,” and “I’m Ready”. Their 2017 album The Click is certified platinum, while 2019’s Neotheater marked the band’s first Top 10 debut on the Billboard Top 200 in 2021 along with their latest, OK Orchestra, which is also certified gold. They’ve sold out venues coast-to-coast and performed on late-night television multiple times. Now, they’re gearing up for their biggest, boldest, and brightest chapter yet.
