To make sure you go ahead and get your tickets before the sellout Tom often talk the man is here I don't. Don't forget man stoked it's not you have been within an XPX for a long time. And you know the first record I got from you guys with like in general and probably down. The the path of punk rock I got into some some punk rock from you guys in in followed along the career from XPX ever since like in general. So. I mean 25. 20/20 five years man like how do you even prepare for 25 anniversary feel like he gets of so many records how do you prepare a set list. When you have so many so much material to draw from. I you know we definitely it catalytic cheat sheet about a year really played out. That's your nutritional dugout who went through and I not every Tom burial and I liked the bit whacko like I respect to without ever record set up. We are pretty packed up and about senators known them. We just anthrax in a bunch of kids in the and that's you know one can learn more or less you just won't make it militants in what's now getting what I'm gross. The stuff that sounds gross you like I don't really like that won her idol. I don't know what I was thinking when I was right now one or is it just like I don't remember how to play that want. Don't don't remember bit and the system work anymore. Fair enough fair enough now just July 7 at the show on Friday the sold out shows with Byron frenzy. July 8 is with slick shoes what made you guys decide to choose these two bins openers the shelves. I'm in the front are forever throughout ears to put under so that and then the book great band and solid and let them you know complicit she is not as cut and let us taxpayer guitarist just like incredible Schroeder talents on the man Byron played you know. We get their horn section and play it unless it's just it's on its times. Now thinking back to your formative years like growing up what one band or album kind of made you decide to pick up the guitar like initially. For me it's the mileage and the descendants there awesome the live record. Is just so does that mean it's like there. Party like them like I heard some really anchor is that your Boehner replied it goes like. It's so much more powerful and intense line and they just sit and German one Tom Dunn earned an announcement or even catch a prep and for me that's just like what taught us how to play alive so. We had to be told people later on the came out and get people are confused second team on the Wii is like just general. That's rad man I mean. You got the energy miners will do it I mean descendants I saw them. What was it back in it was actually the day of the election I remember that I saw them two days two shows back to back or will you everywhere you there at the inept it. I have other about them. That's great man. Now now that you're looking back and all the records that you can draw from for the 25 anniversary shows that. You've had a chance to look at it like what is your personal favorite an XPX album might just start to end all the songs ripped. You know it's just part essentially to keep their child but that. I think general definitely there because that was just like. The first time I feel like we never like really got kind of the panic. We meet the virus doesn't formulas and all I hadn't been great time December around rational instruments that. When we got that record I feel like it's just all kind of started clicking in making an entity I. So permeates now now on just. You know it's it's that formative moment where it looks like whoa wait we keep in its very ill. And that feel like up until then we're kind of like. Just hit unit for fun you know like a hobby and I really don't like we do mystery illness so fund still grating so like you know caught up here talking now but I mean. It something where like this is more than just that to us into. Totally an end and that record I mean. Would that was ever recorded what you guys were still in high school or was it after high school. Not now lose after a slow summer of 1996. So highly graduated stamina and capacity you're after we got out so. This the first record the songs were written on them like they're saying about touring and economic tensions in place that there's uncle.
