Grammy-nominated The Fray continues to receive praise for their third full-length album Scars & Stories, out now on Epic Records. Scars & Stories has garnered attention from USA Today, calling the album "more muscular and more buoyant," while still maintaining a "searching earnestness that will delight the faithful." People Magazine continues that the new album is a "solid effort that is easy on the ears." The making of Scars and Stories fostered the most evolution the band has ever experienced, both lyrically
and musically. "On our first record, we didn't quite trust ourselves yet," says pianist/vocalist Isaac Slade. "We loosened up on the second album, but there was still some element of restraint.

The album is certified Gold by the R.I.A.A. and produced the smash singles "Mr. Know It All" and "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)," which marks Kelly's ninth and tenth top ten hits.
