They debuted their new single "MAYBE TONIGHT, MAYBE TOMORROW" in May of 2006 at the Lance Armstrong Foundation Gala in Austin, Tx in front of a room full of VIP's including former President Bill Clinton. The track is now available at iTunes and all proceeds from the song will go to the LAF to help in the fight against cancer.
