What’s your reaction to kind of getting lumped in with punk or pop rock bands through your label? Although you probably wouldn’t classify yourselves as “jam band” stylistically per se, do you think it has been beneficial to the band to be on a label like drive-thru that has maybe exposed the group to a different base of people than perhaps building up a fan base through the “jam band” culture?

Along those lines, do you think you’ll ever tour with bands in the vein of Umphrey’s or Bisco or Yonder Mountain outside of the occasional festival? And what bands are you guys mostly into as far as current/modern music goes?

Shit, I want to start by asking a wicked lame fangirl-ish question, but we can try to keep it manly.

Where the hell do you buy your clothes man? Easily the best looking band out there. What kind of stuff do you and the guys like?

we are not apart of anything,. dont mean that in a mean way.. we love anyone who comes out to our shows.. if they are drive thru people or jam people ect.. drive thru has been amazing to us.. look how different twilight tales is to trampoline ect.. they let us do what we need to in order to stay creative,,

as for the jam scene.. i think in a way its very similar to the punk scene.. sites like jambase.com are a loit like ap.net..

more so.. we absolutely love the punk and jam scene for th same reason.. the kids are great.. they come to see the music, and they listen to the music. I would never want to end up like tapes n tapes or clap your hands say yeah who can lose their fan base in a year
