What has been the biggest highlight of the band’s career so far?
I honestly have to say my Biggest highlight was opening up for Being As An Ocean on May 4, 2014 at The Edge Church in my hometown of Lancaster, California. It was one of the best shows I've ever played. I had my brother Jimmy back me up on Drums and my friend Riley play bass and we didn't practice until an hour before I had to be at the show. I was super nervous but we kicked some serious ass
If you could tour with any bands, past or present, who would they be and why?
That is a hard question cause there is a lot of bands I would love to tour with but if I had to choose I would love to tour with La Dispute because for one there my all time favorite band I got their logo as a my first tattoo and they're super chill guys. They put on the best live shows that I've ever seen; I would love to tour with La Dispute.
