Thank you for inviting us into your studios and asking us intelligent questions. Thank you for introducing us to some of the most important music in our lives, music that made us who we are.

Others acts who have signed the letter include: Jakob Dylan, Chairlift, Passion Pit, Oneida, Phenomenal Handclap Band, Stone Gossard, Iron and Wine, Heartless Bastards, Bob Mould, Groove Armada and Best Coast, among others.
