"The Everglow" is Mae's second full-length album. Some versions of the album are packaged in a special sleeve. The album is designed like a storybook, complete with illustrations for each song inside the booklet. The opening track, "Prologue", even urges the listener to open the book and read it while listening to the album. This story-like nature makes "The Everglow" a concept album. "Prologue" and "Epilogue" feature narrations by Charlotte Martin.

pecial edition

"The Everglow" was re-released by Tooth & Nail on April 18, 2006 as a special edition. The re-release contains three additional tracks: the new song "Where the Falls Begin", a cover of the Beatles' "A Day in the Life", and a demo of "Suspension" featuring Kenny Vasoli from The Starting Line. It was also packaged with a DVD that contained music videos, featurettes, live footage, and photo galleries. The hand-drawn artwork from the original "The Everglow" album was recreated with a young actor on sets.

Information on individual tracks

"Mistakes We Knew We Were Making"

During a performance at Velour in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 6, 2006, frontman Dave Elkins made the following statement before the band performed "Mistakes We Knew We Were Making" (transcribed from video previously posted on YouTube):

I hope you know how much fun we’re having up here because of you guys. Well, this next song is a hypothetical story of a couple who falls in love; they’ve decided what they’re looking for and they find it in each other…and it’s very good, it’s very rewarding; but…well, not “but” but alongside of this, or as a result of this, an unborn baby comes into the picture before too long. And a lot of people have wondered and talked to us at shows, and I’ve seen it discussed on message boards and whatnot, and a lot of people thought this song is a story about an abortion or this song is a story stating us as pro-choice or pro-life, and that’s not necessarily the case here. What we’re looking at is the fact that as a result of this baby entering into the world, they find a love, these individuals, that’s more fulfilling and more rewarding, and more satisfying, than anything they had known up until that point. [Cheering] I think that it’s important that we understand that love is not always black and white like we’d like for it to be, and sometimes it’s very grey. Sometimes you have to make the difficult decisions. And sometimes you do have to try and fail, and fail and fail a few times before you can actually succeed and get the big picture. And I think that’s exactly what this song is really all about. And this song is called “Mistakes We Knew We Were Making.”
