In addition, the band managed on several occasions to be the #1 unsigned band in the country according to the Purevolume charts. The album is still a top seller at and the band has managed to get their CD and merchandise into Hot Topic stores.

Founded by childhood friends, drummer Wes Comer, guitarist Brad Comer, and bassist Jake Sims, the addition of vocalist Ryan Clay proved a perfect match as the band immediately meshed together a unique blend of genres.

Callahan’s highly anticipated follow up to Face The Day was released today through all digital retailers, (iTunes, Amazon, etc) today. Summer Sampler showcases the band’s growth as musicians, yet still keeps that vibrant the sound that their fans have come to know and love intact.
