Eichelberger left the line-up in late 2007, opting to focus on his burgeoning career as producer and engineer. Carrying on as a trio, Barcelona spent much of the next year honing its sound by criss-crossing the continent on three national tours, including treks with Low vs. Diamond and Sherwood. By December 2008, the band was ready to further explore its possibilities by signing with Universal Motown.
Believing that "ABSOLUTES" has not yet reached its fullest potential audience, the band decided to reissue their debut, amended with a number of recent songs, recorded in January 2009 at Death Cab For Cutie drummer Jason McGerr's Two Sticks Audio. The new material - which includes the outsized "The Takers" and the elegiac ballad, "Come Back When You Can" - point to an even greater confidence than before, a skillfulness and self-assurance gleaned from countless nights on the road. In addition, Barcelona made time to re-re-record one of Fennell's original "SAFETY SONGS" in "Colors."
Barcelona also took the opportunity to have "ABSOLUTES" remixed by three-time Grammy Award winning producer/engineer Michael H. Brauer (Coldplay, John Mayer, My Morning Jacket). The sonic tweaking amplified the album's already substantial power, bringing out the full force of the band's spirit and emotion.
