We recently had the chance to talk with Justin Pierre about Motion City Soundtrack's latest album, Panic Stations. Find it here.
So my relationship with this record is such that having had it for a year, as Iíve gotten older and as Iíve written songs I think a lot more of it Iíve gone with my gut instinct. I sort of let instinct take over. Like I think I had the chorus for ďI Can Feel YouĒ but I didnít know what it meant, and then I had to write around that even though I didnít know what it meant. Then as I started piecing together the verses, then what the song was about changed and the chorus made sense to me.

ď[There was a] period where we were a little bit on autopilot because we were touring so much, and it started to become routine to an extent. Now, itís like ďwhoa.Ē Iíve been in this band 13 years,Ē Taylor continues, ďand weíre still doing this, and weíre not getting any younger and you just really try and enjoy every moment you can. Go out, wander the city. Youíre travelling around the earth right now. Go out and enjoy that. Donít just sit in a room and stare at your phone. For me thatís been the biggest thing, exploring what Iím lucky enough to be able to do.Ē...

Congrats to Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack and his wife on the birth of their healthy baby girl Max.
Also, for those inquiring about MCS album release dates and why we were only playing this city instead of that city and so forth and so on... Well, Max is the reason. I wanted to make sure she was actually here and ok before I made any formal announcement.

Tony Thaxton, formerly of Motion City Soundtrack, has written up a blog about how he feels now about having left the band.
Before the show, we had decided that I would join them onstage for the last song of the night, ďMy Favorite AccidentĒ. Which is probably the song that I have played the most in my life. Iím not sure we ever DIDNíT play that song. Plus we sound checked with it often. I should be sick of it. But it felt like the right song. When the time came, I was actually pretty excited to go and do it. It wasnít announced, no one in the audience knew I was going to play. I wonít lie, it was an ego boost. The reaction when I came out felt really nice. I was truly touched....

Motion City Soundtrack are playing the House of Blues in Dallas this Sunday (2/8), and before the show they're doing a cool fan event at the local brewery, Deep Ellum Brewery. Matt and Jesse will be at the brewery from 1pm to 3pm and if you're 21 and over you can meet up with them and maybe have a few beers. If you live in Dallas and want to go to the show (and don't have tickets yet), I've got a pair to give away. Let me know your favorite beer and what MCS song it goes best with in the replies and I'll pick a winner.
