XS ROCK: Which do you prefer? Writing new songs and recording or playing for a live audience?

XS ROCK: Do you have any outrageous tour stories from the road?
Bryan Feudale: There was a night we were playing a show, We had a pretty decent crowd that was there just to see us. As it turns out the opening bands knew the sound guy and he let them play ridiculously long sets. By the time we took the stage, we were only allowed to perform two songs out of our entire set. Needless to say, I may have lost my temper and had the whole crowd screaming **** the venue we were playing. I got pulled off stage by my shirt and dragged into the kitchen. I will leave it at that…
XS ROCK: What’s the strangest request that you’ve ever received from one of your fans?
Bryan Feudale: We got asked to play “put the lime in the coconut” by a very drunk fan, We had never played this song before so we told him, hey if we figure this out you have to sing it! It was a blast and the crowd loved it.
