I don't even think about it anymore.
Well the band grew up there and we have a good size following there. We owe it to them to not forget they play a big role in our band. It would be kinda rude. Some bands just don't do that well in their hometown area so they don't feel obligated to go out of their way to recognize those people.
When we toured with him he mentioned to us that he wanted to produce. We kind of all looked at each other and thought it would be great if he produced ours. Josh went in and asked him if he wanted to do it and he said yes.
