What city or town do you call home?

Stillwater, OK

Are there any fun facts about your band?

We are all secret agents for the CIA, we’ve never had a booking agent, manager,or producer.

What inspired the name of your band? Are there any other names you considered that didn’t make the cut?

The name of our band is inspired by the exit number for our home town in Oklahoma. A couple of the potential names that didn’t make the cut are “The Rumor” and “The Getaway Cars.”

What’s the first song you remember playing onstage? Feel free to elaborate if there is a story around it.

The first song we can remember playing together was “Free Falling” by Tom Petty, at a tiny bar in southern Oklahoma. It was our first time on stage. We were so nervous that the lead singer put a capo on his guitar and played it in the wrong key. Nobody knew what to do.

You absolutely cannot perform without…

Rider list…
-Giant bowl of only brown m&ms
-Football helmet filled with cottage cheese
-Case of Russian energy drink Chernobyl
-1 Mcdouble cut 5 ways
-A live cheetah with diamond encrusted collar
-16 white hand towels
-1 bottle of water

Do you have any pre-show rituals before you take the stage?

Pre game poo. Haha

What artists made you want to play music?

Garth Brooks. Watching his concerts as a kid was the most exciting thing ever. Flying across the crowd, smashing guitars, and starting fires on the stage while performing great music. No matter what kind of music you like, Garth is the king of entertainment

If you could open for any band on tour this summer, who would it be and why?

The All American rejects. Oklahoma proud.

What is you band’s biggest band ambition?

To be sponsored by Pringles, our drummer’s favorite chips. And of course to get paid (well) to play the music we love
making.

You just found out your record got to Number One. What’s the first thing you do?

Shot shot shot shots shots!! Everybody!

Lasly, is there anything else you want to share with us?

We’re all eating nothing but spicy chimichangas the entire 23 hour drive to Brooklyn ;) see ya in the studio. Haha
