Greg Graffin talks to spinner.com:
Here are some highlights from the article. Click the link above for the full story.
"If we were being offered to play as a heritage act, I don't think I'd feel so motivated. But we're still getting to play every year in new places with vibrant punk scenes, so we still feel relevant."
(...) the veteran rockers will play a string of 12 shows [this is NOT correct as 14 shows are already on sale and more will probably come] at West Coast House of Blues venues with special set lists that span the band's discography. Graffin says that the shows will vary in song selection and theme, with the band possibly running through all of 1988 classic 'Suffer' one night and playing a hodgepodge of greatest hits the next.
A few weeks before rehearsals begin for the shows, Graffin says that he's looking forward to pulling out songs he wrote as a teenager and seeing how they sound today. "As a singer, those songs don't recreate my great skills," he laughs. "When we pull out songs from the first album, though, it's just a ton of fun."
The band has written 16 songs for the album, which Graffin says is "as personal as 'Recipe for Hate," and plans to support the songs on the road later this year.
When asked which album is the band's definitive statement, however, Graffin can't answer.
"I like to believe I can still define myself. If I couldn't, it'd be time to quit. We can still make great albums, so maybe our definitive record is coming."
