Upon returning from a four week jaunt of the UK at the end of 2006, the band were greeted with the news that they had won a vote to appear at the Taste Of Chaos at Cardiff’s CIA, alongside Taking Back Sunday and Alexisonfire, a clear indication that they were starting to reap the rewards for their continued hard work. At the turn on 2007, Said Mike were starting to fill the venues they’d opened just a year earlier, and had began work on their debut EP. Keeping it in the family, the effort was produced by Todd Campbell, Dane’s brother, in their home studio.
