Speaking of 2008’s “If“, he said of the reception and change in audiences:

“It’s interesting, because for a long time we’d open for larger acts and pretty much everyone that took us out, people would get annoyed and think “why is this dude wearing punk and why are there girls in the band? Where’s the electronic sounds coming from, where’s the idiot keyboardist that should be up there?” All these things! So when we got to If, all those crowds were gone, having kids and getting real jobs.

We survived that whole wave of nu-metal caveman backwards shit. All of a sudden we had this young crop of kids, and they were all young and into the idea of everything we were doing. It was the inverse, they’d see women playing, and we wouldn’t be at shows where the crowd would be like “show us your tits.” The girls in the audience would look on stage and think “holy shit she’s in a band and playing bass and drums and not singer songwriter bullshit. This is super inspirational!” So it was kind of refreshing. We were still very antagonistic, but we were getting funnier and smarter.”

For the full feature, head to Noisey. This Friday, September 18th, will mark the release of the bands ‘lost’ album “Pink“.
