On stage as Mates of State, Kori Gardner-Hammel and Jason Hammel have become one of the most critically acclaimed indie-rock groups of the past several years. Their latest CD "Rearrange Us" has been included in several year-end best of lists (including PASTE and taste making public radio station KCRW).
But, as you'll see in this ABC World News piece, the life they live on the road is a far cry, pun fully intended, from that of a stereotypical rock band.
Take a look into their everyday life and then head over to Mountain Stage on NPR Music to catch a four song set, captured live in Morgantown earlier this year, and stay up to date with the rockin' 'rents on their cleverly titled blog, "Band on the Diaper Run."
