Robert: How is the Van’s Warped Tour going? What it’s like to leave your air conditioned homes to travel on a tour bus with 14 people during the height of the summer?
Jake Pitts: [Laughing] We’ve been touring for some time and it’s something you have to get used to. It’s really hot so you have to be prepared to battle the heat and handle all the down time. You have to find something to do with yourself.
We do some interviews, Meet & Greets, and then play for 35 minutes, but it’s still a long day. We also have on-going Xbox NCAA football tournaments; we write music and even have a recording rig out with us.
Jinxx: Honestly I’m having a blast out here. Other than the heat, on the road is where I belong. I think I actually get depressed when I’m home and not playing live every day.
Even if were only on stage for 35 minutes, it’s my drug! It puts me in good spirits and having a good time on the road. I spend a lot of time in my bunk writing while everyone is asleep, and then sleep during the day until we play.
