Matty: It’s whatever you let it be. It can be your insecurities. It can be your hope. It can be what feeds you on your cell phone.
entertaim.net: Well. the new album is really awesome. Congrats. The last time I saw you on stage regarding the „Call your friend“-tour you guys had so much fun with the cocktail bar, stage divers and more. Do you still have the bar on stage? And you you also feel the same positive vibes?
Matty: The bar is still pretty good, so we kept it. Our shows are always high energy and our fans are insane so we love playing live and I feel that creates a positive energy.
