1. Worst injury any of you has ever suffered onstage?
My old guitarist threw his guitar around his body and clocked me in the head. I performed the rest of the set bleeding through my hair and no one knew. After the set I went to the bathroom and washed the blood off my shirt and hair and no one was the wiser.

2. Do you think stage presence is a gift someone either has or doesn’t?
Nope. I was horrible on stage when I started. I didnt move at all and was scared of doing anything wrong. I watched other performers and learned what worked and What didn't. Anyone can copy however, not everyone can own their own stage presence. That's the difference between a good performer and a bad one: the looking natural thing.
 
3. What's your mode of transportation for touring?
Minivan!! Her name is Maggie Mounds and she has a heart of gold. Fantastic gas mileage and enough room to put a mattress in the back for comfortable sleeping. Minivans are the way to tour. 
 
4. Do you ever wear any of your band's own merch?
No. We think its kinda like making your own tour laminates. A waste of time. We love wearing other bands merch though!
 
5. Any good dirty jokes to share?
Why do midgets laugh when they run? Because the grass tickles their balls. We have others.....but they aren't for polite conversation or company haha.
 
6. When the band tours, should audiences expect slightly different versions of the songs from what’s on the album or do you try to duplicate the sound of the album as closely as possible?
Different, for sure. Why would you come to a live show to just hear the album again? We like to give the audience something they can't get on the track....along with lots of sweat and moshing.  
 
7. Silliest mild fear /phobia about which your bandmates constantly mock you?
I loath crawdads. I know they cant really hurt me or anything but I just hate them. If we go swimming in a river or place they might be I tend to stay on the shore. Partially because I don't want to hear about it from my band, and partially because I want to keep my toes intact. 
 
8. Is it true what they say about drummers? guitarists? bassists? singers? etc...
Yes. Except singers. We are wonderful and I DO load gear in and out of the venue. Ha.
 
9. Ever have to use the dreaded Port-a-Potties during festivals?
I WISH I could say those are the sketchest place I've gone to the bathroom. Yep we all have used them, just go for the one farthest from the food vendors and stage and you are usually good.
 
10. One person you would really like to see you perform?
I really want to be best friends with Lzzy Hale. So she would be on the top of my list. Also Dave Grohl because he is a fantastic musician and fun guy.
 
11. Any major shows or festivals that you’re dying to play but haven’t yet had the chance to?
We would love to play some of the famous venues across the US. I would love to play the machine shop or knitting factory. As far as festivals go, we want to play them ALL! Ha, as well as over seas. 
 
12. How many days in a row can you wear the same pair of pants on tour before it becomes, ya know, a problem?
We have a "febreeze" system in the trailer....so we can stretch our clothes wearbility out a day or two past normal. I usually can get away with 5 days of shows in one pair of pants before they are too gross to wear. I usually stop at 3 or 4 days though for the fans sake.
