They Re-Formed In 2008 After A Video Of Their Performance Of â€œThe 12 Days Of Christmasâ€ Became A Youtube Phenomenon Which Led To A Multi-Album Deal With The Historic Atlantic Records. Since Then They Have Released Two Holiday Albums 2008â€™S Holiday Spirits And 2009â€™S Christmas Cheers As Well As The Pop Music Based With A Twist. Over 25 Million Youtube Views, National Tv Appearances And Constant Touring Have Led To Sold-Out Shows And A Massive Fanbase.
