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." 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".
