The band quickly captured the hearts of a fast-growing army of fans, gaining 3 million total plays and 50,000 friends on MySpace, and the EP went on to sell over 12,000 copies. The media soon followed in backing the band, with Alternative Press naming them one of their 100 Bands You Need to Know, while their video for “Runaway” won MTVU’s ‘Freshman 5′, and their songs were featured on MTV’s The Real World and Parental Control. The band released their second EP Damn Rough Night while on tour with Forever The Sickest Kids and The Rocket Summer in December 2009, which hit #9 on the iTunes Alternative Chart, and #98 on the overall chart.
