The COVID-19 pandemic has put an end to sports all across the country, but it's hit the music industry especially hard. In the first part of our "double album" podcast edition with B.J. Barham of American Aquarium, we discuss his love of NC State and the band's newest album.

What went into releasing "Lamentations" during the pandemic? How did the album rise to the top of the Billboard charts? In what ways has NC State influenced his music throughout his career?
