1. How would you describe your music to someone who’s never heard of your band and what song would you recommend them to listen to first?
Our description of ourselves changes daily. Today it is 'dream pop for stadiums, as played by an nyc punk band in los angeles.'
The first song someone should listen to would be 'Never Going Home' because it feels like all of that. Then listen to the rest of the album because we have alot of faces.
2. What was the writing/recording process like for ‘Aviation’ and was it different from previous albums?
We recorded 'Aviation' in our creepy house in Los Angeles. We wake up, make some drinks, and start from an idea. By2am, the song is done and everyone is drunk. In our past, we would write ten songs with our amps on eleven and that would be the album. This time we wrote over 100 songs, and 12 of them became 'Aviation'.
3. Where did the idea for the ‘Aviation High’ music video come from?
The director Raphael Chatelain and creative director Luke Gilford heard the song and came up with the vision. We had never made a video that way, so we let go and they built a world around the song.
4. Any bands you’d love to work/tour with?
Above all else, we are musically obsessed party animals. So a tour with anybody that feels the same would be a blast. We have met alot of cool bands recently that we'd be happy to cruise with.
5. Any tour plans?
We are doing radio shows through the summer and looking to tour in the fall and winter through forever.
6. Any crazy stories that happened tour?
Too many to pick, but one just popped in my head so thats the one you get. One night a woman was trying to break into our tour bus. Cole went outside to find out why and she handed him a stack of laminated photos of her pet skunk riding in a custom go-kart. She really wanted Lady GaGa to have this laminated skunk editorial and who can blame her. They were amazing.
7. Any news/shout outs you want to give to your fans?
To all SPW fans. We love you and want to get wild with you around the world forever.
