What albums or songs are on your tour playlist?
Bands we have been listening to nonstop in the van are Pilgrims, Ghost, Early Graves, Narrows, All Pigs Must Die, Clutch, Mastodon, Red Fang, Sex Tears, and Paul Simon's Graceland. Lots of hours driving around the world, we’re always getting new records and bands to pass the time. Luckily there's tons of rad shit coming out lately, it’s a great time for metal and hardcore.
Who is your favorite Playmate?
I know she's not a Playmate, but when Drew Barrymore was in the magazine in the mid-’90s I remember that being a huge deal. I went to an all-boys school and everyone was freaking out, talking about it, and trying to look up photos on the ancient internet at the time. People finally got copies of the magazine and everyone had the hugest crush for the rest of the year.
Talk a bit about your new tour; anything in particular you’re looking forward to?
This summer we're really lucky; we get to play a lot of amazing European festivals. The shows are always awesome and you get taken care of very well, it's the best. They're always really fun because we have lots of friends’ bands that are playing them and then lots of bands we don't get a chance to see often. So you can hang out with your best homies and watch Refused in France! No better way to spend the summer.
