From Josh Eppard:
Ah, the final week of Vans Warped Tour. We just finished a 13 show in a row run and, boy, are my arms tired….no literally, my arms and legs and everything is beaten down. Warped Tour will put you to the test. It’ll test you in ways that you just can’t prepare for. It really all comes down to how much you believe in the music you make.
No project that I’m involved in will win any popularity contests any time soon, but that’s not a bad thing. You have to remind yourself out here that you don’t have to compete with A Day To Remember or Gym Class Heroes in crowd size or merch sales to be taking full advantage of the Warped opportunity. I gotta say I have learned so much from MC Lars about what it means to build something on your own and be proud of the people you did turn on to your art, even if it isn’t thousands of people a day. I can honestly say I have never worked so hard in my life but I also have never felt such a reward. Every new Weerd Science fan to me is another person who can relate to not only my art but my life as they go hand-in-hand. There isn’t a price I could put on that.
