We also finished in the #1 spot on the Top 9 Of ’09 on 93X’s Loud And Local show. Both accomplishments for the single “Whatever Gets You Through The Night”. Our album “Everything Takes Forever” was named Best Local Album Of 2009 by KMSU’s Midwest Beatdown program. We’re also nominated for Minnesota Band Of The Year by WHMH, with results being announced on January 2.
