With The Dangerous Summer announcing their new album, Golden Record today, I figured it was only right to ask AJ some questions about the new album and the future of the band. You can read my short interview with him here.
Matt and Ben were definitely sent from heaven. They came at the perfect time. We were trying out drummer after drummer and guitarist after guitarist. After so many misses, we finally found the men we were looking for. It was so hard to go on day after day, not feeling like our band was at it's full potential, but we made it through. We always make sure that we push through any hard time. When Tyler left the band, we recorded War Paint a month later. When Bryan left, we recorded Golden Record a few months later. There is no stopping in this industry, and we were lucky enough to find a light at the end of a dark tunnel we were going through. I definitely feel way more confident knowing that we have solid permanent members. There are nothing but clear skies ahead.
Wow, I'm really excited about this thing. I've never listened to 1994, but, everybody seems to rave about how good they were so I'll probably check them out. And I had no idea the new guitar player was from The Graduate.
