After the concert Beauchamp explained the logic behind putting out two albums on the same day. "Musically, the albums are very intertwined, even though one is originals and the other consists of traditional songs," he told me. "They can stand on their own or together." He emphasized that the band's vision is a meshing of old and new and that both albums contain those elements. Furthermore, the albums can be purchased separately or bundled together.
