Their second album, Let's Cheers to This, was released in 2011 and became a breakout for the band, thanks to the popular single "If You Can't Hang", which was certified Gold on July 18, 2018, by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling 500,000 copies in the US.[3] The group's third album, Feel, debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200, and a fourth album, entitled Madness, was released on March 17, 2015, through Epitaph Records and spawned the single "Kick Me".
