The past few years were very exciting for the independent band. Army Navy released their first (Lasus produced) album on their own Fever Zone Label in 2008 and quickly garnered great admiration from fans and in the press. CMJ called it "..some of the brightest pop released this year". The quartet's first single "My Thin Sides," which was paired with a hilarious video featuring Paul Scheer of Human Giant took the blogosphere by storm. The second single "Saints" which Blender Magazine called "a lovely indie-rock swoon" was the prestigious Single Of the Week on iTunes Australia and was released on the UK's Fierce Panda's Club Fandango Label. Stateside, it gained radio rotation on tastemaker stations like KEXP and KNRK and satellite radio's indie-leaning XMU station.

The band found success in the placement world as well. The indie rock date-flick Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist prominently featured two Army Navy songs alongside artists like Vampire Weekend, Modest Mouse and The National; one of the songs being an exclusive track for the movies soundtrack. They have also been featured in the Shrek Forever After theatrical trailer, Beastly Film and Soundtrack, The Bachelor ABC TV commercial, and shows like: Weeds, The OC, Numbers, Greek, and many more.

Over the past few years the band have taken their dynamic live show on the road supporting such groups as: The Lemonheads, Arctic Monkeys, The Dodos, The Soft Pack, The Like, and Cut Copy; as well as explosive shows at SXSW and CMJ and the UK's Truck festivals. The band was even asked to be musical guests on the short-lived Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien!
