Guitarist Mike Kennerty chats about the different cohesion behind the bandís latest record Kids in the Street, having to restart things with every release and maintaining passion for music.
"Pop radio is literally just pop music now. Thereís no guitars to be found, so we kind of saw that coming. Itís a different place and we made a different record. Itís not like a singles record, itís actually a record. That was our concentration from when we were recording. We knew we were making a fucking record. Fuck the normal system of singles and all that stuff. Obviously, itís going to get worked by the label, but we wanted to make something we were proud of as a record, first and foremost, and we did that."
