|Sidewalk Prophets shares, "If you've ever chased a dream and caught it by the tail only to realize that the tail was actually just the beginning of a longer, more difficult and rewarding journey, then you already have been acquainted with The Things That Got Us Here. After five long years, we're ready to let this project out into the wild. We have one request for those who choose to listen to this project."
"We only ask that you find a quiet place, go on a long drive, or put on some headphones and truly LISTEN to the album from start to finish. If you make the time to pay close attention, to truly listen, you will begin to hear that amidst each individual song there is a greater story being told. This is the story of our lives."
