I've always done music, since I was 13. I really don't know what I'd be doing if I wasn't doing music.

We knew that it would take a while to find a new label and put out a new album. We decided to put something out in the meantime, not to win over new fans, but for the fans that we've had over the years. We had all these songs that had never seen the light of day. This CD is something for the super-fans.

The best part was being able to watch Pennywise and Rancid every day, and to have lunch with the bass player for Blessed Union of Souls. Everybody eats together; they don't treat anybody like a headliner or an opener. Everybody is just there to play. It's a great community.
