The Morning Show on Chanel 7 // AUS

On Wednesday morning we were asked to perform on The Morning Show on Chanel 7 here in Australia, an opportunity we gladly said "YES" to.

Tuesday evening we flew up to Sydney, had a bite to eat, and headed straight for a rehearsal studio to work out an acoustic version of our new single "Hurricane".

With little sleep, the following morning we drove to the Chanel 7 Studios in Sydney, and widened our eyes enough to see, while we performed at 9.50 AM EST on national television.

If you didn't see it live, watch it here:
