How does it feel to be back doing Warped Tour?
It’s pretty great, especially for us and it being main stage and a much bigger situation than we’ve done before, it’s definitely a dream come true. Growing up, I went to the Warped Tour a lot and I got to see bands like Rancid and AFI and Dropkick Murphys and these bands that meant so much to me when I was a kid — all in succession on these stages, so to get to play that same stage that I watched those bands play is a huge thing for me.
And then obviously we played it in 2011 and it went really well. For [Warped founder] Kevin [Lyman] to have us back, it feels good to be part of the community. I know that we’re definitely the weird kids at the lunch table so to speak. We don’t really fit in that well stylistically. We’re always different from other people, but as much as we aren’t the guys that are going for the summer camp aspect, you can’t deny that everyone that works for Warped Tour is so kind and we do have a great time. You can only be the bad ass and the rebel for so long. [laughs]
