Interview with Jono

What's it been like performing some of your new material live, and how happy have you been with the response to it so far? It's been a breath of fresh air. We hadn't played them together since we wrote them, so it was great fun to get jamming again. Usually we have to adapt songs for live, but with these they were already crafted with our live shows in mind.

Also, how did your recent tour go with Mallory Knox, and can you give us a couple of personal highlights from your time on the road with them? Just selling out shows; it's the best feeling in the world. We shared a bus with them and had one of the best months we've ever had. Great bunch of lads who deserve all the success they're getting.

How did you end up on Red Bull Records? We've worked closely with Red Bull for years. We recorded our first album in their studios, and when they heard the demos for this one, they wanted us to put pen to paper and sign. They're the best label out there as far as I'm concerned. It's not about signing a band to make a quick buck, because they don't need the money. They're the differential in an industry that is having to reinvent itself to sell records. For them, it's all about developing a band from grass roots, and watching it grow. It's refreshing. Everyone who works there is so enthusiastic about music and our band, so that feeling is contagious!
