12 Questions With Timeflies, Your New Favorite Band

The guys of Timeflies sat down and answered some questions about their new album. And this is why they’re your new favorite band.

1. What can you tell me about the new album?

It’s the most proud we’ve ever been of something we’ve worked on. Its Timeflies sound, but more awesome. We spent a lot of time hauled up with just a guitar and a piano before we even got to recording, so a lot of the songs stayed pretty “instrument driven”, which was really fun for us. Hip hop flow, big hooks, huge drops.

2. Why Warning Signs? How did you come up with the name for your latest EP?

This project really felt like first thing we’ve done on this level.. transitioning into bigger shows and reaching more people with our music.. but this is just beginning. Just a warning sign of things to come.

6. McDons or T-bell?

As much as getting deep in cheesy gordita crunches, doritos loco, and anything made by Lorena Garcia, there is something about that spicy mcchicken.

8. Funniest moment on tour?

Ha don’t know about the number one funniest, but last week our new sound guy realized Cal’s in-ear pack was out of batteries.. mid song the dude (who is a pretty large, hairy bro, at the time wearing a small pink Timeflies tank top) runs up on stage and starts diggin in Cal’s front pocket tryna get it out. Took him a while. Epic.

10. When you wake up in the morning, you always do these two things…

Snooze, and snooze.
