ABC’s Flash Forward will be playing MDR’s song “Brother John” on tonight’s episode! Tune in to watch at 8pm EST. Also their song “Man Of The People” has been heard during a bunch of games for March Madness this month.

Right now the guys have a few more shows left on this tour, which included 7 shows at SXSW this year. And yet to come is a Daytrotter session that they’ll be recording on Saturday!
