If you thought Gym Class Heroes were difficult to categorize in the past, with their latest release, The Quilt, it’s literally become impossible – and we mean that in the best way imaginable. In fact, the follow-up to 2006’s gold-selling As Cruel As School Children doesn’t just see the band expanding on their unique blend of hip-hop, rock, soul and punk, but transcending it.

When childhood friends Travis McCoy and drummer Matt McGinley decided to start a band in upstate New York over a decade ago, they could have never anticipated how successful Gym Class Heroes would eventually become. How could they have predicted having a record-setting #1 single with “Cupid’s Chokehold/Breakfast In America” or taking home the trophy for Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards? And yet, they take it all in stride and see it as another source of inspiration.

“Everything that's happened to us in the past couple years has been a part of this bigger thing, so all the experiences that we've been through with success and everything is a patch in our quilt,” frontman Travis McCoy responds when asked about the significance of their new album’s title. “We kind of had to blanket ourselves in all the hard work, and, in the end, everything paid off because we ended up with a pretty dope record.”
