    Steven Hyden sat down with Brian Fallon over at Uproxx:

    We had call, and we were just like, ‘Hey, are we gonna just ignore this?’ I know we’re on hiatus — we’re not doing anything, everybody’s off doing their own thing, and everybody’s fine. But if we let this go, that says something. That would come across as apathetic to me. I was like, ‘I don’t feel apathetic about this. How do you guys feel?’ They didn’t feel apathetic at all. They felt like, yeah, we should probably do something.

    Then we thought, ‘if we play some shows, what happens? Do we have to start the whole thing up again?’ What realized, well, no, because of this record, we can do what we did in the beginning, which is [anything] we wanted.

    Great read. Really enjoyed the last couple of questions and his responses to writing songs at his age now. Can't wait for Sleepwalkers.

    Always enjoyed Steven Hyden when he was with now defunct Grantland.

    This part of the interview hit a feeling for me:

    I’m not a songwriter (I’m a song consumer!), but as a new-ish father, I could not agree more. When one flame burns out, another is lit. Love it.
