Why should people care about your band?
“We just make the music that we like, the rest is up to the audience.”
What is the most hilarious, frightening, or weird thing you have seen from the stage or while on the road?
“Indoor pyrotechnics gone wrong – they almost burned the place down! Stage equipment in flames and smoke thick as mud. Glad we survived that shit.”

“Any band, any day!”
What is the most pretentious thing you’ve seen or heard from another musician/band? Did you love it or hate it?
“We once saw a pretty profiled vocalist rub his nipples with strawberries, then throw them out on the audience. That’s pretty pretentious. Gotta love that self esteem.”
How do you feel about smartphones lighting up concert venues instead of lighters?
“As long as there’s light it’s all good!”
If you had to be a tribute act for just one band, who would it be and why?
