"We're completely beside ourselves," offered an emotionally charged Anthony Armstrong. "We attribute the success of 'Faces' to our fans. We are well aware that we only get to do this because we're supported by a lot of incredible people coming to our shows and connecting with us online every day. To say that we're humbled is an understatement."

The band returns to Los Angeles next week for a performance on NBC's "Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on Wednesday, February 16. ("The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" airs weeknights at 11:30/10:30 CT).
