You can read our interview with French pop-punk band Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! here. The band is currently out on the road with For All Those Sleeping and Upon This Dawning.
When things happen, they happen. A lot of the time there is nothing you can do to change life experiences, you can just be a spectator and do your best to adapt to it, even if it seems impossible. We do our best to live every single day as if it were our last. We are alive today, we live in the moment.
