Greg: "Every time we play a show in a new geographic region we leave with a great sense of accomplishment, especially if the show was sold-out. These occasions are special because there is only one time that you first enter a new region. Every repeat trip to that area is slightly less exciting, slightly more predictable, and feels a little bit more familiar. This has its advantages too, but the sense of anticipation and edginess provides for a special experience and usually a great show". "We always have to balance that compromise between playing and having some time off for sanity reasons and to further develop our mental state. The reason that we could continue it is because everywhere we play, there are people who genuinely want to see us. Every time we go to a new place, there are people who have been waiting for years and years to see us. That's a lot different to people who are out there milking it, bands who are out there just riding it high off a hit they had a few years ago".
