I would tell you they opened for us two years ago and remain great friends and even greater inspiration. These guys play Southern rock, like if My Morning Jacket and Sonic Youth had a baby. Hardy [Morris] has one of those voices that I would kill for, and what really pisses me off is how cool he looks. I have never looked as cool as Hardy in my life.

You told MTV that M.O. will be back in the studio this summer and that you intend to make the next record "big and broad."

I am not sure. We plan to finish our long, long tour and then begin writing together built on these ideas I have in my head. We are all really anxious. I don't know why MTV chose that two-minute moment of the 30-minute interview, but those are the breaks, I guess. The new album will be better than our last, and that's all I can really say about it so early on in the creation.

Is it me, or has M.O. been out on the road since Mean Everything was released?

You are correct! We can't stop. Unfortunately, there is a lot of truth to that. We actually can't stop because of the type of band we are. We must maintain a presence on the road so that people can experience something more than a burned CD-R disc with "M.O." written on it.

What can fans expect when you hit Revolution?

We have played Revolution opening for many, many bands. This will be our fourth time there and the first time we have ever headlined, so there is quite a bit of nostalgic gratification to it.
