Further, their third full length album is due March 13th. Lead singer Matt Vasquez explains why the album will be self-titled:

"We found the sound that we've been looking for, that we've been growing into, and as soon as we hit on it, we ran with it. That's why it's a self-titled record, so we could connect our identity with what we think Delta Spirit is."
