We hope you enjoyed spending last month with March’s VH1 Posted artist Grace Potter and the Nocturnals as much as we (and they) did, but after a whirlwind month, notably including a killer You Oughta Know Live set featuring their cover of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit,” the band has returned home to Vermont.

But time marches on! April’s VH1 Posted artist is none other than Hanson! If you’re still under the misapprehension that the brothers are a boy-band one-hit wonder, here’s a corrective-in-brief: After the massive success of 1997′s triple-Grammy-nominated Middle of Nowhere, the band toured incessantly, reissued their indie back catalog, and then recorded follow-up This Time Around. But personnel changes at Mercury during its late-1998 absorption into Island Def Jam left the band without any label support for that nonetheless critically acclaimed 2000 record. Four years years of negotiation (documented in the 2005 film Strong Enough to Break) later, Hanson and Island parted ways, and the band has continued to release modestly successful, well-reviewed records on their own label, 3CG Records—most recently 2010′s Shout It Out, featuring “Thinking ‘Bout Something” and “Give a Little”:

We’re happy to help correct the historical record and share Hanson’s music through VH1 Posted, and the band is too. They have already begun sharing a whole bunch of videos, photos, and other communiquĂ©s, like their video announcement on April 1 of their forthcoming Slipknot cover album (featuring behind-the-scenes studio footage of the band tracking their rendition of “Wait and Bleed”):
