We aren’t kids anymore. We have wives, kids, house payments- real life shit. Every member of this band has questioned how much longer they can do this. We’ve left our families for months at a time, sometimes coming home with what would equate to minimum wage. Or less. We’ve spent the last 5 years clinging to that last bastion of hope that we would have that hit song that would connect at radio or become a viral sensation and catapult us back up the mountain. We’ve had our fingers crossed for years, (so have the wives), that each next tour or album would be the answers to all of our prayers. It didn’t exactly work out that...
"We’re talking a lot about it, trying to figure out what we want to do," the frontman says. "We knew we wanted to focus on the anniversary for now and have that be our stepping stone into the right mindset. I think we’re going to be writing and sharing ideas throughout the touring, then see where we are and focus after that. We don’t want to rush anything; it’s been awhile since we put out a record of all new songs, so we want to make sure we do somethign we love and go in the right direction and know what we’re doing. So we’re not gonna rush it but, yes,...
I don’t think anything holds up necessarily better than anything, it’s all preference. If the song’s good then it’s going to stand the test of time, and if it’s not, it won’t. There’s no rules in music, and I struggle with this stuff all the time. What’s the better way to do things? Should I write a song about this? Should I write a song about that? You never know. There’s no way to tell.
