Interview by Taylor Irwin
I grew up in a very musical environment. I was in bands in the Brisbane area and ended up meeting the guys through mutual friends.
I'm torn between "This Could Be Heartbreak" and "Fight My Regret". They're both super fun to play but in totally different ways.
We've been covering The Ghost Inside's, "Engine 45". We did it for a little tribute for our friends in TGI and it turns out it fits really well in the set and is really fun to play.
Of course. Every time I come off stage it feels like I've just let out a whole bunch of anxiety and stress.
I think we've covered every city there is to be covered now , but I'm always excited to play New York, LA, SD just to name a few.
Usually just relaxing. Eat lots of food, maybe see movie. Sometimes even play a round of golf . Depends how we're feeling.
Honestly there's too many to name now. Our fans are some of the most passionate people you'll ever meet.
It's too hard to pick just three songs. I'd just pick a mix of '80s and '90s bangers.
Cereal. lots and lots of it.
