Sindy: So, there's a contest/tour sponsored by Rogers coming up where the prize is to meet you. What's it like to have tons of people enter a contest just to meet you?

Chuck: I guess it's flattering that people would take time out of their day to go online - or however they're supposed to enter - just to meet us. It's kinda weird. I know I certainly wouldn't do that to meet me - I'm not that interesting. It's kinda cool though. This concert tour gives us the chance to play free concerts all over the country and play places we haven't been before. It's going to be a good time - we're just playing a bunch of shows all over Canada.

Sindy: Are you guys playing Warp Tour this summer?

Chuck: Yeah, we're playing a few dates, but not the whole thing. We've done it before and it was amazing but this year we're making a record so, unfortunately, we can't play the whole thing. We're doing the Boston show, which is on the 10 year anniversary of the tour.

Sindy: Cool. Who's your favorite band to play with?

Chuck: That's a good question. There are so many great bands. We've got to play with almost every single band we totally love. I would say Rancid was the highlight for me because I grew up loving that band and I got to do the whole Warp Tour with them. They were so gracious and so cool.

Sindy: Did you ever think you were going to be where you are today a couple of years ago? Chuck: I guess it would be really cocky to say that we expected it, but I think we always hoped for it and worked towards it and we knew we had to work super hard to get there - and we did. It took a long time, it's not like this happened in a week but that makes it even better. It made it so much better when it finally came together.

Sindy: When will the new album be out?

Chuck: We don't have an official date yet but we're hoping to have it out by September or October 2004. We're in Vancouver right now writing some songs, so we're still trying to complete all the songs and put everything together. We're going to be in the studio in June, July and August in Montreal with Bob Rock, who made Metallica's Black Album. He's an amazing producer and we're so stoked he's working with us. So we are going to be working together for three months and hopefully have it out by October, that's the plan. And hopefully it won't suck.

Sindy: What can fans expect from this CD?

Chuck: Well, I think that we definitely, as a band, are evolving and growing - I mean it's so clich

That movie is soo overrated. I never even got what it meant. And, there's also lame songs playing every 5 minutes of the movie. :mad :mad
