Hey guys, congrats on the vinyl release. I'm beyond stoked to get mine and to see you in Atlanta on the upcoming tour and Warped Tour.

My first question is when will you be doing a headline tour and who will you take out with you? I'd love to see you guys and the dues in Artifex Pereo and The Orphan, The Poet hit the road together. Any chance that could happen?
Thanks so much for your support! We're stoked for the Atlanta show :)

We're working on plans for the Fall after Warped Tour finishes...nothing concrete yet, but we love both Artifex Pereo and The Orphan, The Poet. We definitely talk to those guys about touring together, so hopefully that could come together sometime soon!

How do y'all think you will progress from Satori? Will you try to expand on the sound or try to take it in a different direction a little?
Probably a little of both. We definitely don't want to limit ourselves...sorry, that's probably a bit of a cliche answer :/

Hey Blake! I would like to thank you for being my inspiration for drumming. Ive always been so amazed with all the parts you write, ever since We Speak. I was wondering what your inspiration is! thank you so much!
Thank you so much for the kind words <3 I love the primal nature of drums and really feeling the rhythms of songs of my favorite bands...I try to write parts that really give that sort of a feel to our music as best I can. Jose Pasillas from Incubus is my favorite drummer.

Hi I the Mighty, I first saw you perform at the Saratoga Rec center in 2010 and have been a fan of your music ever since then. I'm glad that you are on Warped Tour this year and only wishing you were playing the Mountain View date. I will be seeing you at Bottom of the Hill on May 17 though.

My question is will the album We Speak or Satori ever be pressed onto vinyl sometime?
We're stoked for the Bottom of the Hill show! Gonna be such a blast playing in our hometown with letlive., Architects, and Glass Cloud.

We actually just announced a preorder for Satori vinyl today! We Speak probably wouldn't be for a long while...but ya never know ;)

What are the bands you look forward most to playing/interacting with on Warped this year? Besides Anberlin, obviously.
I know I'm gonna forget someone, but I'm really excited to see Enter Shikari and Issues. There's a lot of bands this year that I'm not familiar with, so I'm just really looking forward to discovering some new music too.

No real question here, just wanted to congratulate you guys on a truly spectacular record that gets better and better with each listen. You guys are monster musicians, and Blake, you're giving me fits trying to figure out some of those drum parts. I'm bummed that you're not hitting my Warped date, but I'm sure I'll catch you boys soon. Be safe out there.
Thank you so much, that really means a lot! <3 Hope to see you out on the road sometime!

Hypothetical question that may or may not be hypothetical: if you, um, HAD to choose...uh, yikes, well...Pat's or Geno's? I know this answer but the WORLD MUST KNOW.

How did the deal with Equal Vision happen? How did I the Mighty get their attention in the first place?
It was unexpected to be honest. Equal Vision has been our favorite label for as long as we can remember. It was always the label that we hoped to be a part of in our wildest dreams, so we feel extremely fortunate to say the least. We had actually recorded a couple of demos (Escalators and Cutting Room Floor) that we were sending out when we were trying to get a booking agent. We sent it to Brad Wiseman (Soroka Agency) who ended up showing it to everyone at Equal Vision...one thing led to another and we couldn't be more thankful for the way everything turned out!
