The single quickly garnered attention from music blogs, print publications, and college and AAA radio stations. Shortly thereafter, the duo paired with Boyer and drummer Peter Natishan to release the band’s first album, "Frantic," with Dave Hidek at Tree Lady Studios, in Pittsburgh, and began actively touring the Northeast and Midwest United States, playing shows in New York City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Chicago. In the spring of 2012, Natishan was replaced by drummer Toni Crough. Crough, now living in Los Angeles is being temporarily replaced by an assortment of electronic drums at live shows while the search for the next live drummer is complete.
In the summer of 2012, Andes began work on their sophomore album, "Castlevania," at the band's own recording studio, and with Stan Kleja at Audible Images Recording Studios, in Pittsburgh. They finished recording the album in 2013. The album was mixed by Alex Smolinski of Wonder Wonder Sound, in Milwaukee, WI and mastered by MasterDisk's Andy VanDette, in New York, NY. Alex's credits include work on Butch Vig's Emperors of Wyoming, Lola Ray, Gym Class Heroes, and Nada Surf.
Andy has mastered work by David Bowie, the Beastie Boys, and Atomic Tom, among others. "Castlevania" was officially released and made available on iTunes, Amazon, and other major retailers on February 25, 2014.
