In late 2012, USA Today named the band one of 5 "Bands to Watch" in 2013, saying "Toy Soldiers is a rowdy collection of five talented young musicians who have honed their sometimes soulful, often blues-y rock n roll with relentless touring during the last two years, growing into one of Philadelphia's best live bands."
In April 2013, Toy Soldiers recorded 4 songs at Converse Rubber Tracks Studios in Brooklyn, NY and released them digitally and on 7" vinyl, Rubber Tracks Sessions on July 4, 2013. In June 2013, the group was selected to record a live video session for Paste Magazine at the Aloft Washington Harbor Hotel. The video premiered on Paste.com on July 15, and a few days later, Paste also premiered "The Teller," the first single from their upcoming album.
