The boys are touring with Anarbor, Valencia, Runner Runner, and Go Radio.
This week we caught up with drummer Andrew Cook for a quick Q&A about all things music:
Life-is-Awesome: Who was your musical inspiration growing up?
Andrew: I had a lot of different inspirations growing up, from punk rock bands like Pennywise to country bands like Alabama and Alan Jackson.
LIA: One of the most popular TV shows right now is “Glee.” Were any of you involved with your school glee club or school band?
Andrew: No not really. In middle school I was in the band, but sadly my high school didn’t have one. I’ve actually never seen the show. Am I missing out?
LIA: What has been the most interesting place you’ve traveled to on tour, so far?
Andrew: Definitely Australia . Nothing beats that (yet). I can’t wait to go to Jakarta though!
LIA: What inspires you musically?
Andrew: Life in general! And other drummers I tour with. And my favorite bands.
LIA: If you have a bad day, what motivates you to keep going?
Andrew: Imagining what I’d be doing if I wasn’t lucky enough to play music for a living.
LIA: What’s your favorite thing about performing live?
Andrew: The looks on kids’ faces when you start a song they really want to hear. And kids singing along of course. Those are the best parts of my day.
