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.
You can download a copy of their EP here!
3. You walk into a bar what do you typically order?
Cal: “Bar tender, a glass of your shittiest tequila.”
Rez: “Hey, ten shots of patron?”
4. Go-to song to sing in the shower?
Cal: That’s Life, Frank Sinatra
Rez: What Hurts The Most, Cascada
5. What’s your favorite part about releasing TFT’s?
Definitely getting to take a song we like and flip it. Really exciting.
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.
7. What is something your 16-year-old self would never believe that you have experienced or accomplished today?
Cal: Playing on the radio.
Rez: Stopped playing Diabo 2.
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.
9. First CD you bought?
Cal: The Slim Shady LP
Rez: Macy Gray, On How Life Is
10. When you wake up in the morning, you always do these two things…
Snooze, and snooze.
11. Best piece of advice you’ve ever received, who said it to you?
Cal: “Swing hard in case you hit it.” -Coach Bob Sheldon
Rez: “First to live, then to philosophy.” - Random Guy on street while abroad in Italy
12. What are you looking forward to most about the Warning Signs tour? How will it be different than One Night, The Scotch Tape, and Under the Influence?
Everything has gotten more polished.. our performance, and our new lighting rig.. everything is just even higher energy now. Gotta come see it!
