4. How would YOU describe your sound?

7. How about live dates? What have you been doing and what ya got planned for 2024?
2024 been kind of slow, we have been working on the album. But we have don
e some Swedish shows, and we will tour Spain for the first time ever in October! Looking forward to that.

8. Name something about yourselves that fans won't know
love old country music. Cant get enough. Not the new stadium stuff, but the old, dirty stuff.

9. What's the most embarrassing moment you've had?
gs might get weird when you are on the road, but not really embarrassing. If something like that happens, it is just usually fun and something to laugh about for a while.
We played a festival in Germany called Langeln Open Air last year, and in the middle of 
the set a fucking huge fly few straight down my throat in the middle of an Udo Dirkschneider scream. Ipuked straight out on that stage. Not so embarrassing for us, but yeah, it would be for Taylor Swift.

10. Do you have any superstitions? Any things you do before a show?
Nope. We would get
 annoyed if our pre-show whiskey bottle would be missing. But nothing else really.

11. Are there any musicians or bands you'd love to work with?
I love to work with almost any band 
or musicianIt would be really cool to sit down and write some songs with Danko Jones, he seems like a cool one.

12. Any final thoughts?
Stay safe and be kind to each other kids!!
And always listen to The CHUCK NORRIS EXPERIMENT.

Thanks for having me!
