The Stadium Tour

"This is like the childhood dream, playing these kind of venues."

"When you first start playing guitar, or whatever you're doing or even a sports thing, really what you've imagined in your head is what we're experiencing now. So we're having a blast."

Not Being A Nostalgia Act

"But we're not a nostalgia act, obviously," he continued. "We have a new album out."

Diamond Star Halos/Putting Out New Music
