What is your name and what do you do in Sing It Loud?

How’s the tour with The Rocket Summer and My Favorite Highway going so far?
It's fantastic! My Favorite Highway have become our new best friends and I've been a huge fan of The Rocket Summer for the last few years. Forever The Sickest Kids is one of my favorite bands to tour with and this is our 3rd tour with them.
You guys cover Jimmy Eat World’s “Hear You Me,” do you guys do any other covers? And plans to?
We covered "Hear You Me" because it's a song that we all love and a song that inspired all of us to write music before we were in this band. I think a lot of bands and people in general out there can say the same.
What are some goals you want to accomplish on your next album? Any idea when that is going to be released?
We just wanted to make an album for ourselves; an album that is different than all the bands in this scene are making right now. The "scene" is dead and we wanted to make a big move. When you hear it, you'll know what I'm talking about.
Best story from Warped Tour?
I have 3 best stories.
1. Becoming friends with JR from Less than Jake because they are one of my favorite bands that I grew up listening to and idolizing.
2. Gallows getting pissed at me because they thought I was talking shit about them on stage.
3. The picture of me kissing Jeffree Star which immediately led to the entire Strike Gently community thinking I was a douche bag, but what's new right?
What is the best accomplishment for you so far?
My favorite accomplishment is being able to tour with my favorite bands. Bands like Less Than Jake on warped tour, Cobra Starship, Midtown, well, Gabe in general...and The Spill Canvas.
How did you guys meet Josh Cain and how did he get involved with your EP and full length?
We got an awesome opportunity to open for Motion City Soundtrack in our hometown of Minneapolis and we all talked with Josh after the show and he was really into our set and what we were trying to do. He helped pitch us to Epitaph and when we got signed, produced our current record.
What has been your favorite show and tour you guys have played so far and why?
My favorite show so far was when we played a sold out House Of Blues Chicago a few days ago on Halloween on the FTSK tour. The crowd was insane and we dressed up as the Scooby Doo gang, which was one of my favorite cartoons :)
How do you guys deal with some of the haters out there?
I don't really care about people that hate on us. The way I look at it is......I'm on tour with my best friends, having the time of my life, living my dream. You can't hate on that, and if you do, then the jokes on you :)
What is your favorite album so far this year?
I'm really into "New Again" by Taking Back Sunday.
Anything else you would like to add?
We're putting out a new record in the spring time. Get ready!
