The Spin: Our good friend Jacob Tender over at Under The Gun had the opportunity to sit down with drummer Tai Wright and briefly speak about the band’s plans for the future. You can check out an excerpt below, and read the full interview here.
How did it all come together? Did Jonny hook everyone up or did someone come to him?
As far as me personally, Jonny have been talking about collaborating since the 2012 Allstars tour when he was with [Dance Gavin Dance]. I think the Souls On Fire tour is where he and Lyman hooked up and got to talking. He sent me the material, Lyman revised it after we listened to it, and then we got everyone on board once we had a solid body of material to go off of.
Jonny and I are going back and forth on the name, art direction, and future plans. I’ll be on the Savages Tour with him, playing drums for his solo material. Were excited! We’ve got big plans for summer.
