TM- Can you tell us a tour story?
Our first show of the tour was the 2nd show we have ever played. In Italy they have toll booths on their highways and we were waiting in the line and someone hit from behind kept on coming to close to our car so I'll guitarist wanted to jump out of the car and confront, except he didn't end up doing it.

TM- What's your favourite memory of watching someone else play live?
TB- In 2010 i was on a festival and Parkway Drive were on the same lineup. As the guitarist had broken his leg he was playing his guitar while he was in a wheelchair.
