Anonymous asked: Are there any songs you're sick of playing? *cough jasper cough*
At times, I’ve been conflicted on a few songs in the set: It’s a mental game preparing live music for everyone to hear. I don’t feel like a Bruce Springsteen-type performer, much more comfortable with the idea of being alone in a studio and the 4 guys, working away on music for no one to hear at that moment. And because of that personality that I have, I always shy away from the crowd-pleaser sing along. Which is wrong, because it’s fun for everyone and lord knows we could use some fun mixed in with all the heavy lyrics and music we’re putting out.
Also, we’ve changed those songs many times over the years. They feel good as new now. Not sick of them, just excited for new things soon.

We got into some Honey Chex on the last trip through the states. American Corn Pops also. When I’m home, I definitely go hard on the Peanut Butter Panda Puffs with some additional bananas or raspberries.
We made it. 4 weeks and 4 days of constant travel across 12,000 km (7500 mi). Thank you to the amazing crowds at Winnipeg Folk Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, and Hillside. Thank you to the small, but incredible crowds in Los Angeles, Seattle, Minneapolis, Burlington, New York, Brooklyn, Detroit and Chicago. I ate pork buns in Manhattan, tacos in Van Nuys, and ill-advised deep dish in Chicago. They all tasted really good, thank you very much. But it’s nice to be back. It’s always nice to come home.
