Bread & Circuses (1989)
Our first international release, Bread & Circuses introduced the band's signature sound to a cross-country audience. Recorded in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, B&C exceeded our expectations in terms of radio charting and audience response. It immediately gained us respect and recognition on a much more expansive scale, in a large part due to the solid writing. A number of these tracks became mainstays in the shows that we perform to this day. Originally released on the regional label, Kingsnake, it was later picked up and re-released by Relativity, again giving us a boost in sales and clout.
