The Twilight Sad eyeing I Became a Prostitute video

From the album, Forget the Night Ahead.

The band's first album, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters was recorded in three days whereas their new album, Forget the Night Ahead, took two years to come together. They found it hard to write while touring and didn't want to have a rushed final product. [DrownedinSound]
