If you haven’t figured out by now, this is clearly an April Fools joke. I mean, even if you haven’t looked at the calendar today, a song called “Chicken and Fries” should’ve been a dead giveaway, right? It’s ok… don’t hate yourself. Lots of people fell for it. In the middle of writing this very blog, I fell for one too…

With today being April Fools Day (a fan favorite and time for us to have a laugh) we thought, why not tackle something that isn’t quite out of the realm of possibility? We know Zach is always cooking up some new tunes, and the thought of Mayer being on the project could definitely happen some day. The Boss? Probably not…

So that being said, make it happen Zach… make it happen. Give us that next album… we’re all greedy bastards.
