“We’ve been a band for about 10 years now,” says Becker, as he explains the reasons behind the band name change. “We have a lot of footage of us as youngsters playing pop punk music, which is great but I think our new sound is little more beach pop. When we go on tour, people who’ve never heard of us look us up on the Internet and the first thing they see is us playing pop punk and they don’t really see what we are now.” So change they will. The band will be known as Swimmers after their Soundwave Festival appearances in 2015.

Right now, it's "Nut up or shut up", proving time. Honestly, I feel like we have a lot to prove, and I feel on this album we did. I think one of the best thing that we found with this new album coming out is that we truly found out who Palisades is.
I’m never going to tell God what he can and can’t do, so I won’t say Memphis aren’t going to be the next Metallica. But I will say there’s a chance that we won’t be. I have the ability, the means and resources to do something like this solo album, so there was absolutely no reason why I shouldn’t have made it. But I want to make it really clear that Memphis are my priority.

On this record we don’t focus as much on the sad as much, it’s a very empowering record. We talk about belonging to that group of people that all feel the same way; we all belong to it, and we’re more than welcome to anyone who wants to be part of this world with us

And then there are some bands that have something to say, and I'd say we fall into that category. So I think if someone could catch us playing "Paper Thin", then I'd feel satisfied that they gave us a fair chance.
