"Don't get me wrong, I know how to party," Radford declared. "I just don't drink or do drugs."

"We're trying to play as may DIY spots as possible. We love playing bars and real venues, but some of our best shows have been in basements and living rooms," he said.

"And let me just say — no one plays has hard as we do and no one has as good of a time doing it as we do," Radford said. "Every time we get up we put everything we have and then some into playing. If you catch us in front of 2 or 200, you're going to see the same passion and fire in our playing.

"There is nothing we'd rather be doing."
