(Ryan) Holy F*ck.

So like a car must have crashed

into that semi or something,

a bunch of cars.

(Kyle) I wonder if maybe

something hit that first.

(Jesse) Is there two semis?

(Kyle) I Don't know.

(Jesse) You see the one on

fire there to the left there

is a big something...

(Kyle) I can't even

see through the smoke.

(Ryan) You gotta look inside

the thing and see if it

says record or not. R-E-C.

(Jeff) Oh Okay.

(Ryan) Yeah, it's going on?

- Yeah.

- Alright cool.

We were just zooming up the

highway and like I saw this like

fucking black billowing smoke

like coming out and we didn't

know what was happening, we

thought like there was a house

burning down or something...

(Jesse) I get panic attacks, I

get panic attacks just driving

down the road because I'm all

of a sudden back in Alabama,

it's always-

[snaps fingers]

I'm there,

it's fast, and it's so scary

because that guy

hit us from behind.

And it wasn't anything I was

doing, I was just driving good

and normal down the road, right?

I didn't make any mistakes.

That guy smashed us from behind

and forever changed everything.

I think we had

something special.

I don't think that that beauty

that we could create, that art,

would just have ended.

Holy f*ck you guys,

look what we did...

and then look what we did.

We were young and mean to each

other and we just were so

focused on the art at all costs.

And it cost us a lot in the end.

[electric guitar]

(Ryan) Hey man how's

it going, it's Ryan.

(Piet) Hey Ryan,

good, how are you?

Good good, can

you hear me all right?

I can hear

you just fine.

Ok, I'm going to see if

I can make you louder here.


I'm here with Stu, who is

rejoining the band for the tour.

Oh, that's nice, yeah.

Thanks for hopping

on I appreciate it.

(Ryan) What are

the notes on the...

What's it like being back

together after all that time?

Um, It feels like no

time has passed and a lot of

time has passed.

I remember the idea coming

up a number of years ago.

And I don't think we

specifically thought like

a ten-year anniversary was the

way to go, we were just talking

about getting together and

doing some shows. Cause we never

really did like a last show with

Jesse or anything like that.


I have only sang two days.

I sang the very first day and

made my voice sound like this.

So I took two days off,

and I sang yesterday,

and this is the result again.

So I'll take today

off, and tomorrow.

(Stu) I'm really enjoying it, I

think everybody else is too, and

you know, we wrote these songs

ten years ago, and we've all

been active musicians over the

last decade, so I kind of think

if anything we are playing the

songs better than we would have

ten years ago.

(Ryan) Yeah, it's nice too

cause Jesse has something about

him as a singer that's very

honest and passionate and

I don't know if I realized

how much I missed that,

but I definitely did.

(Piet) awesome so, what

happened with, why did Jesse

leave and then why

did you leave Stu?

Um, I mean, there was a

lot of differences about how we

thought the band should happen

and kind of what direction we

wanted to go and he and I rubbed

each other the wrong way a

little bit on some of our

personal stuff and it was

definitely a situation where we

weren't going to really be able

to continue working together.

But, um, yeah yeah we...

I guess that's probably all

I need to say about that.

(Jesse) Things in the past that

might have been bumps in the

road, things that might have

caused disagreements and

arguments, everybody is just
