Jonny Craig has struggled with drug usage for the better part of this decade. In fact, he’s struggled so much that he’s either left or been kicked out of three bands now.

The band have posted on media platforms that their new album will blow their previous release, 131, into the water. With the release of Givin’ Up fans are at the edge of their seats waiting for what’s to come. This is a song with huge crossover potential.
