When asked if it’s a heavy burden to wear with people calling them “saviors of rock,” he responded:
“Yes, it is. But somebody’s got to do it. If we’ve been given an opportunity, I don’t see why we wouldn’t take it. We’re just as sick of manufactured bullsh*t as everybody. We want to hear real music.
“Maybe we can inspire enough people to pick up real instruments and make real music from a real place.”
On whether or not they are rising to the challenge:
“[Emphatically] Yes. … I like to think that we’re wielding a different torch, offering something different to what others have to offer at this time. I feel at this point that we’re the right people to be doing it.”
