First pet you ever had?

The first pet I ever had was a cat at my grandparents house. One of their cats had kittens and I couldn't really have pets at home so I always had this cat Cody at my grandparents house. I spent a lot of time there in the summer and that cat lived forever! Unfortunately as I got older I became allergic, but none the less good

Do you believe in aliens?

I definitely believe in Aliens, there has to be something out there. Out of so many galaxies and how huge space is we can't just be the only ones! Also shout out to Coast To Cost radio for keeping us entertained on tours!

What is the last website you went to?

Gizmodo I read it everyday!

Time you went to sleep last night?

11:00 the first time I have went to sleep before 3 in weeks!

If you were a cop, would you have a mustache?

YES! And aviators!

Do you lose things often?

It's kind of a problem for me. I have been through more phones and wallets than anyone else i know. It's gotten to the point to where my friends make photo shopped images of me that say "Hates & Breaks Phones"

Last time you went to the dentist?

I'm probably due for a visit

What do you put on your hotdog?

Jalapenos, Ketchup, Mustard, Sauerkraut, basically anything that's available to be put on will be piled on.

You have had a lot of licensing success with various brands. Did that lead to signing with Converse?

Daniel: We have had a decent amount from Nike to Patagonia to Quicksilver. But Converse kind of came out on its own :).

After performing at numerous large music festivals, opening for large artists and performing on your own, is there something that you do differently to prepare for each type of show?

I get anxiety a lot so what I tend to do before every show is sit backstage and kind of be alone for a bit to kind of mellow out. I used to eat before I play but now I don't. What I would like to change is to be able to take a nap before I play haha.
