Their first album “It’s About Time” finally came out on August 8, 2006. But Columbia Records didn’t do much to promote it so it didn’t take off.

Frustrated with how things were going the brothers wanted to find a new record label and in 2007 it was official: Columbia Records dropped them. Their album sold around 67000 copies in the U.S.
