CLICK THIS PHOTO BELOW TO BE DIRECTED TO LAST INTERVIEW
Nicole: it’s been over a year since I last interviewed you. I bet it’s been crazy, but what has changed since we last spoke?
Billy: It’s been a year already? That’s crazy. Over the last year we switched over to Sony which was cool for us. I’ve been dreaming about being on a major label my whole life. We finally are touring in a big tour bus and not a van anymore too which makes a world of a difference. Getting to fly down the highway watching Direct Tv, playing Xbox, having a place to make food and everybody has a nice bunk to sleep in. Nothing beats a bus !
Nicole: And that time when we last interviewed, “Favorite Liar" had over 5.5 million Spotify streams, has that grew?
Billy: Favorite Liar is still our biggest song, right now it’s at almost 12 million which is pretty crazy. It’s crazy seeing 12 million next to the name when some bands I listen to on a daily basis don’t have 12 million streams on a single. Pretty cool feeling for sure.
Nicole: Have you been on tour, played any festivals, if so which ones? Describe the experience, the best part/ the worst part
Billy: We we’re actually doing a bit of both. We were on tour with a band called New Politics for about 2 months and then went out with our friends in The Maine. I actually turned 21 on the last night of tour with The Maine so that got pretty crazy. We have been in the studio recording our first full album so that has taken up most of our time this summer but we still got to play a few festivals which was most likely my favorite part of this summer. Playing festivals I watched on Paladia growing up was the coolest feeling ever. From walking on stage to tons of people at BottleRock festival, to playing in 100 degrees at Lollapalooza or to running around in the pouring rain at Bunbary Festival!
Nicole: Are you headlining a tour soon, or going on a tour opening for other bands any time soon? If so when?
Billy: We are actually doing both! We are going out on the west coast with a band called The Struts, then we head out on our second headline tour starting November 10th in Portland !
(The tour just started this week--best of luck! Whoops-- I mean, break a leg!)
Nicole: Heard you are playing a hometown show, how did you find out and what did you feel?
Billy: Asbury Park on December 1st at the Asbury Lanes ! When Schmizz and I heard about coming to NJ we both freaked out (laughs). Whenever we are planning a tour, we usually just email our booking agent with what cities we want to go to and which are our best markets. So we got the list back for this headlining tour and we both saw an Asbury date. Since the beginning of this band we have only played a tiny show in NJ which was mostly family of the band. Since we are back in the area again with a way bigger venue, sick bands and an awesome area to play in I’m hoping to see some friends come out and make it a show to remember! Nothing beats a show close to home, can’t get any closer than this! Hope to see everyone Dec. 1st!
