How long did you all know each other before you became a group?
And when's the next time you'll be in Tennessee?

Hi,

In the current lineup, nobody knew each other before joining. I (Simon) established the band over 11 years ago and auditioned people to join; the only person I knew before they joined the band was our longtime guitarist, Johnny. I live in TN now though the band is still based in Portland; we'll probably be playing a show here sooner than later, I would guess about summer.

It depends on the person; Joe loves playing "Endlessly Falling" and Simon's favorite might be "Sakura, Sakura"

Hi, we appreciate you writing in response to the misleading news story about the new trademark registrations. What they fail to report is that almost all of the applications are from people reclaiming the term and using it in a re-appropriated manner. That being said, we know that people don't need energy drinks or products to be racist (just as people don't need trademarks to create products). However, as we often say, the cure for hate speech isn't censorship. It's better and more nuanced speech. More importantly, it's allowing marginalized communities to be empowered to speak for themselves, not have some random government office doing it on our behalfs (and incorrectly to boot).
