In 2008, Newquist recorded Work It Out in Austin, Texas and Scottsdale, Arizona. Newquist serves as the only original band member featured on the album and worked with Nick DiDia to create the "melodic train wreck." The lead single, "The Light Inside," found national radio play in late 2008 and would rank as the second most downloaded song in Caroline's Spine's history, placing it just under their biggest hit, "Sullivan."
A US tour in promotion of Work It Out began on August 31, 2008. This is to continue into 2009 with concerts in North America and Europe.
