After years of musical and geographical separation, they decided to unite and create rootsy music that blends blues, folk and rock music in a way that melds their sibling harmonies and the music they loved as kids together into one package. They are currently on tour to support their latest release, 'Live, Volume 2: Nail and Tooth,' a live set collection to be released on August 28 from Southern Ground.
