So you guys are doing a sort of mini US tour right now?
Kurt: We were just kind of hoping to get out on the road a little bit because we just put out the record. But we're going to do some more extensive European touring for this record, but due to the volcano… We just wanted to play a little bit in the US.
You got a new member after the release of "Spirit Youth", right?
Kurt: Yeah, our fourth member, Raffi, who plays bass and keyboards live. That was just a result of having way more instrumentation on the record.
For me it’s always a personal challenge to write interesting music with elaborate melodies.Making use of weird instrumentation, that’s something I’m interested in.
