Fruition will be donating the proceeds from the first 3 months of digital sales and streaming for the tracks "Dirty Thieves" and "New Colosuss" to charities closely tied to the subject matter of each track.

"Dirty Thieves" was written by Jay Cobb Anderson as a result of the band’s van being broken into while playing a show at Brick & Mortar in San Francisco’s Mission district. The song references being woken up to the area's homeless problem by the sound of shattered glass, feeling inconvenienced by the theft at first, but upon looking closer, seeing it as another human struggling to survive. It imagines them using what was taken to somehow improve their desperate situation that is all too often overlooked. Keeping in spirit with the songs message, initial proceeds will go to San Francisco’s Community Housing Partnership who’s mission is to help homeless people secure housing and become self-sufficient.

"New Colossus," composed by Kellen Asebroek, uses lyrics taken from Emma Lazarus' poem of the same name which is engraved on the base of the Statue of Liberty. In turn, the first 3 months' proceeds will be donated to the National Immigration Law Center. The band also recorded a live version of the track in Brooklyn for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest while on tour earlier this year:

With more festivals and a show at Red Rocks on the horizon, the band have announced a new run of headline dates for the fall including stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., and New York City and more. They will be joined at various dates by Daniel Rodriguez of Elephant Revival and The Lil Smokies. In November, the band will return to the Pacific Northwest for their first headline shows since they sold out New Year’s shows in Seattle and Portland. Yak Attack will open those 3 shows.
