Well, considering they're like my best friends it's been fun as shit. And every band that opens, there's been like a few different opening bands, every band that opens (has) been @#$%& cool. Movielife opened up for a month and they're two of our best friends now. Can you get me a tissue dude because I'm @#$%& gonna blow snot all over this girl and I don't wanna (to his manager Jason). Midtown is cool as shit. Lefty, Sugar Cult, all these different bands. It's been fun. It's been a two month tour and we've been up for six months total now so we're ready for a break even though we don't get it we're ready for one.
He was a friend of John Feldmann from Goldfinger, so that was the hook-up. We started writing the song and Goldfinger was sort of hip-hop oriented, so we thought we'd get someone who knew what the hell they were doing. So, we left the whole bridge part open for him and sort of just gave it to him. He took it home (and) came back with a whole bunch of different ideas and we just all collaborated.
The best comment we've been getting lately is that every time I see you guys (you) are getting better. I mean the fact that you play over 200 shows in the past year if you're not getting better something's wrong. And I think live we're better. We're singing better and just simple shit like that. But, sort of getting sick of each other.
You ever heard of a beer called Milwalkee’s Best? It’s a really cheap brew from the States. Take the M from Milwalkee and the EST from Best and there you have it.
It was kind of like paying dues. You just get better over the years you know. No matter if you’re a welder or a swimmer or whatever. TYou do it years and years and just start to realise the different things what you can do with it. We’ll be in this band for nine years in October, so you start to realise you can do different things with your music you know.
Actually we didn’t know if we were going to make another record after that. We didn’t know if we were going to get another chance to record another album.
I want to produce and write films. I have a couple of friends that are actually in the movie business right now …
We have just grown as a band and this is the record that we’re really really proud of. I think this, as a whole, it is the bands favourite record. As far as like putting everything into it. Like the artwork, it was a conscious effort. I love the cover of the record. I think it’s all to do with growing up.
