The greatest thing of this tour is really all the support bands like us, The Movielife, and Thrice. All the bands have been on small tours together so it's great to be playing like a huge national tour and like just have a ton of fun. I mean we're sharing this bus with The Movielife.

I would go and show my ID and I would get into all the bars at Rutgers.
