hands-down one of the best experiences as a band, ever.
CRAZIEST MOMENT YOU’VE EXPERIENCED IN THE BAND:
Being drunk on a beach at 4 in the morning, eating pizza with other bands and random people from

“Have you ever had a dream that you, um, you had, your, you- you could, you’ll do, you- you wants,
you, you could do so, you- you’ll do, you could- you, you want, you want them to do you so much
you could do anything?”
REASON FOR THE TITLE OF YOUR RECENT/FORTHCOMING RELEASE:
As far as “Dino Droppings” goes, Brandon got very intoxicated and thought it would be funny to have
an album named after a quote from Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park.

We have shows planned, but none officially confirmed because we’re in the process of writing a new
THE OLD DAYS OF MUSIC WERE BETTER THAN THOSE CURRENT, DO YOU AGREE:
BRANDON: I can see where some people may think that, but I feel that the world needs to move on
and evolve and that it’s only going to get better from here.
NICK: I disagree, I think that the directions that some genres are taking are making waves in new
music and I’m excited to see where it might bring us.
JUSTIN: I disagree, old music bores me. As much as people don’t want to admit it, right now is one of
the most exciting times to be a part of music, because of the internet and technical advancements
that we’re making.
DREW: I disagree, I don’t believe music is meant to be in a set direction, that it’s meant to evolve
and us with it, just like humanity.
Nothing unusual yet, but we have a new merch line coming out this year that you can watch for!
VARIATIONS YOU’D LIKE TO DO ON ANY OF YOUR SONGS:
Acoustic renditions are always fun to do, and we’d all like to do down-tuned versions of our songs.
WHAT DO YOUR FANS MEAN TO YOU:
Without our fans or supporters, we wouldn’t be able to do what we’re doing right now. They feed
off our energy, which makes us play harder and give it all whenever it comes time to play a show!
X-RAYS OR ANY OTHER TREATMENTS NEEDED FOR BAND RELATED INJURIES:
Nick has dislocated his shoulder at a couple of venues, nothing too major. Drew had a incident in
2016 where he did some major damage to his right leg, and was unable to record/play for 7 months
while he recovered.
YOU’RE LATE FOR A SHOW, WHO’S FAULT IS IT:
ALL SIMULTANEOUSLY: BRANDON!!!
