Our new album is called "Another Life", and it is without a doubt, the greatest thing,
I've ever co-written/recorded. Every song is killer!!

The most exciting moment would be the first time I ever hit the stage playing a radio festival with Fuel for about 30,000 people. That was when everything changed for me...the moment I realized that things were never going to be the same after that... As far as the current tour... it's
still coming so I'll have to get back to you on that!
