We never came into the band being like, “All right, we’re going to be this grunge-down, indie band forever, or we’re going to be a mainstream band.” We’re just doing what we want to do, making the music we’re happy with and proud of. If that reaches to a larger audience, awesome. Like I said, we’re totally content with where we are now. Hopefully, it keeps going in a positive direction and we can keep this as our careers.
