Frontman Brett Scallions left the band but returned in 2014 with the release of Puppet Strings and new tour dates. With sales of more than a million albums worldwide, The Verve Pipe is best recognized for their radio hits "Photograph," "Hero," "Happiness Is," "Never Let You Down" and the #1 single, "The Freshmen."
