In your 20s it's ok to climb in a van and go on tour for extended periods but in your 30s and 40s it gets increasingly hard because people have families. The hiatus was due to Stephen, Bill and Milo raising children. If you're a parent you don't want to be away eight months in a year. I think we're back, we'll probably make a record and probably be doing more shows but I don't think we're going to be doing the kind of tour that we would do in the old days which was very intensive.
Grueling tours. On the Everything Sucks tour, we were home 17 days in that year. It can be a strain, at a certain point. When you're a kid it's great, it's all adventure but when you get older you've got a life at home. Me, speaking for myself, I've been on tour the whole damn time anyway, I have no children that I know of so I've been out on tour in the past six years with Gogol Bordello, I've been on tour with The Real McKenzies, I've been out on tour with a band called All Systems Go. I'm kind of addicted to it.
