Current Career Success/2018 Tour

"We have and you know we're having a bit of an Indian summer with our career and I think it's, you know, just persistence, all that stuff. Great management, great team, the whole tour, everything. All the stuff we did before with Mutt Lange. Just non stop. All that really counts and we're just grateful that we're getting an opportunity to do this."

"We've been doing - we played St. Louis Busch Stadium last night where the Cardinals play. And we've been doing a bunch of stadiums and the arenas have been packed and the response is amazing. So yeah it's an Indian Summer. It's kind of, careers doing this."

Working on a new album for 2019?

"Yes. Well 2019...we'll see. Yeah, yeah. We're constantly - we're actually recording a song right now. Obviously we done the Spotify Session and we done Personal Jesus. It's out it was a cover of a Depeche Mode song. That's great. So you can do it and I actually produced Tesla's new album that comes out in January on tour last year."
