In 20 words or less, how would you describe your band?
Hunter: “Tight, bluesy, rock n’ roll explosions.”

Why should people care about your band?
Kevin: “We’re constantly on tour and work real hard to make a living playing rock n’ roll. Whether or not that makes people care about the band, music is what we love to do and that’s why we do it.”

What is the most hilarious, frightening, or weird thing you have seen from the stage or while on the road?
Kevin: “I woke up in the middle of the night in a hotel room to find Logan slowly walking towards me with his head down. I kept asking him, ‘what are you doing man?’ but he didn’t answer. He continued to walk towards me and just stood at the edge of my bed in silence. I was totally freaked out. All of sudden he started peeing on the ground all over my clothes. That was the night we found out Logan sleepwalks! It was frightening, weird, and hilarious all at the same time.”

If you become a band that eventually fills stadiums or arenas, what would be the most ridiculous thing you’d require backstage?
Nick: “Dinosaurs.”

Which band could your band defeat in a street fight? What methods would you use to ensure victory?
Hunter: “One Direction, because we can move in all directions.” 

What is the most pretentious thing you’ve seen or heard from another musician/band? Did you love it or hate?
Nick: “The guitarist from another band we were playing with sat down in our dressing room and explained to me why his playing was comparable to Jimi Hendrix. No.”
