Jon Downs and Boutwell offered two different views when I asked if the band would rather be in a studio or onstage. Said Downs: "Recording is more satisfying on a creative level, and achieving a permanent, physical result is more satisfying," while Boutwell noted, "As a songwriter, recording can get more stressful as the time goes by, whereas live onstage the hard stuff is done and you can just be in the moment and make people happy."
