Our interview with Relient K can be found here.
It’s kind of like when you get to this point in your career, I’d rather people love it or hate it than not care. I actually read a ton of posts on Absolute Punk yesterday, just seeing what people are saying about it and stuff. Some people are violently opposed to the direction we are going, which is something we knew would happen. Honestly, I’d like to see what they think about it later because a lot of them were saying that about our last record. I remember when that came out a lot of people hated it, like “Why is it so negative?” So I don’t know. I think it’ll be interesting to see what happens with it. Maybe it’s not some ...

In a recent interview with PropertyOfZack, Pat Kirch and Jared Monaco noted that their band, The Maine, recorded an EP of punk songs.
Pat: And then on the last day we – because we were doing the whole thing completely live so we were set up. So we recorded an EP of punk songs as a joke.
POZ: Really?
Jared: Like a five song EP of punk songs.
Pat: And then we did a Neil Young tune. And then we did a punk version of one of the tunes on the record. We just had some fun at the end.
Jared: Yeah. It was way different than last time. Instead of having 30 songs we wanted to record, we only had 14, 15. Once we got them narrowed down – it was a way more focused effort this time.

PureVolume recently interviewed Sherri DuPree-Bemis of Eisley about the band's new album, motherhood, and building a home studio.
Motherhood hasn’t made a difference, and I have definitely not even thought twice about it. Like, ‘Should I try and look look more grown up?’ No. I never wanted parenthood to change who I was, because then it gets weird, and that’s risky—when you start to change who you are, once you have a kid. That shouldn’t be how it is. So the only difference is, now we have this amazing little baby everywhere we go, and it just makes everything more fun.
