It's their first record in five years and inaugural effort with ATO. Here, you can check out the entire record, which includes crunchers like "My Love Won't Wait," somber swooners like "Decay," and road-weary rockers like "Ride Away." You can also pre-order The Bloom and the Blight on iTunes and check out the Two Gallant's batch of U.S. and Europe tour dates throughout the fall.

Song Stories


The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
