gets thrown at you in life and how you deal with it. It has a sense of hope and a positive outlook on things. It started out as a song to start off with and Jacoby was dead set on having songs that could be album titles. When you went into the studio to record this album were the songs all ready to go? No, actually we made a conscious decision to show up at the studio with nothing pre written this time around. Normally as a band we get together and jam and write the songs together for a couple months and then come into the studio and re- record everything again. Tis time we didn’t have much of anything, maybe a riff or a chord or a vocal melody or a lyric idea, so we wrote the songs around one of those ideas. We wrote it and recorded it as we were going along, came back a couple days later and thought it still sounded great! It was really exciting to create music in that way for us, and I know it was super scary for Jacoby. He was not confident at the beginning but when he started to get into it, it turned out to be the right way to make this record. I hope we can work that way again; I love being in the studio, being in the moment and just coming up with ideas. Tat’s the funnest part for me. Tere’s quite a lot of rapping in your music. Are there any particular rappers you guys enjoy as a band? Some of the newer stuff I’m not into. Tere’s always gonna be the greats like Eminem, Jay Z, Nas and Wu Tang Clan that we grew up on, but as far as the new guys go we like Royce da 5’9” who is an amazing MC, but he’s not even new, he’s been around for a

while. It’s really that we have our own style that we’ve developed over the years and we tend to stick to that. We’ve always been huge fans of hip hop. In the 90’s we were immersed in that type of music…Cypress Hill and Beastie Boys, those kind of groups, so it stuck around in our blood. I was so into the Red Hot Chilli Peppers when I was learning to play bass that that sort of funky groove style is just how I play. I couldn’t get rid of it if I tried! Te world of rock music is traditionally very ‘sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll’. How normal is your life when you’re not on tour? How normal?! So normal I don’t even want to tell you it’s so normal!

Seriously, people think it’s so cool, with groupies and everything and I don’t want to ruin that image. However being on tour is one thing and being at home is completely different. I have a wife and a two year old. Te only thing I want to do when I get home is take my dogs and go on a hike. I just want to be as healthy as I can and do nothing but hang out at home with my family. Te biggest sacrifice a touring musician makes is that you’re always away from your family. You’re around fucking freaky, nutty people all the time so to come home and be normal is a much needed thing.
