Like any greatest hits album a lot went into selecting what went on this album. "We pretty much went with the songs we were performing live on The Hunger & The Fight World Tour," frontman Finny McConnell told us.  "We did mainly fan favourites and a few new songs on that tour, so when we finished the tour in December 2015, we went straight into Telejet Recording Studio in Toronto and recorded about 40 songs. We were so tight from touring that most of these songs were recorded on the first take. I really love these new versions. I think I may even like them better than the originals!" Finny also told us that an acoustic "best of" will be coming out next year.

Be sure to pick up your copy when "The Very Best" comes out and look our for tour dates.
