After some time performing, the band caught interest of singer Cody Peck, who then, auditioned weeks later. Peck's range and charisma impressed the band, and he was accepted without hesitation. Now with a full lineup, the band began to record their first single, "Wamsutta Ridge”. Following it’s release brought a lot of attention and popularity to the band, but also a new line up. Kelleher decided to part separate ways with the band, and Falcone took over as lead guitarist.
The band then recorded their ‘Redemption EP’; a collection of songs Paul and Kelleher had worked on together in the past. After the band began to gain significant local popularity, they decided to take the next step and began creating material for a studio album. "Dear Hope, Never Let Us Part" was chosen as their first single in late 2011, and subsequently the band chose "Dear Hope" as the album title. The band spent the next eight months writing and recording the new album.
Keyboardist Christian DiMare and guitarist/vocalist Patrick Yeo were recruited in the process, after losing Pruitt. The record is a thirteen-track, concept album that follows the story of a couple and the various instances where hope is challenged in their lives. Symbolically, the girl is named Hope, and she represents the "Hope" we all hold in different aspects and challenges throughout our lives. Falcone describes the album as "a perfect balance between all the genres that influenced us growing up...and that's very diverse, making it hard to put a label on us". The band states that they fit into the "progressive rock/alternative" genre, but also add that their music leaps through a handful of different genres.
Among a long list of their influences are Avenged Sevenfold, Brand New, Silverstein, and The Dillinger Escape Plan. The band hails from Southern Massachusetts, and is well-respected throughout the community. With new material constantly in the works, the band members are excited and optimistic for the next step in their journey. Currently in the process of mastering, "Dear Hope" will be released in November 2012. Look for Scan The Sky on Bandcamp, Facebook, Youtube, and Tumblr for further updates.
