How come you dont tour with other punk/hardcore bands in the states like you do in europe? I feel like you gave up on that community and gave yourselves to the metal crowd.

it's better to mix the bill up with different genres and get a bigger crowd, the hc/punk scene is smaller in the usa so promoters rarely want a bill that only draws one crowd. bands who tour with only 1 style of band on the same bill limit their audience and we have fans from all walks of life. we don't feel the need to cater to 1 audience since we have fans in every sub genre of heavy music.
