“…We’ve toured with tons of big bands, Blink‘s one of the biggest, but they’ve also been one of the most generous and humble and down to earth and caring and kind. It’s crazy touring with a band that would strike the entire stage for your gear, and just going out of the way to always be really, really sweet to us.

It’s amazing to get to be in the studio and to experience his creative mind. He’s a different kind of writer. He is really quick fire. It’s really cool to watch him work like that. And yeah, he’s pretty legendary, even for someone who’s outside of the whole world of pop-punk it’s still like, oh, huge deal.

So, we’re beyond excited and yeah, it was a pleasure. I think it was a long time coming, but it was an absolute pleasure. We did a couple of songs with him, so there’s some unreleased stuff that will be out later on as well.”

Heartwork” will be in stores this Friday, April 24th.
