In tempo with the songâ€™s meteoric rise, the bandâ€™s media profile is heating up with a recent cover story in USA Today, appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live, upcoming performances on The Today Show ( July 24), Live with Regis and Kelly (August 1) and the bandâ€™s involvement in GREEK, the new ABC Family series in which the band (vocalist Tom Higgenson, guitarists Dave Tirio and Tim Lopez, bassist Mike Retondo and drummer Deâ€™Mar Hamilton) has recurring roles. The show airs Mondays on ABC Family 9/8c and will encore on the ABC network Fridays at 9/8c.
