With so much time spent touring the country in their van blasting tunes that range from Paul McCartney to Slipknot, we were pretty curious about what life on the road actually feels like. With exhaustion sagging their shoulders, the answer was clear before they even articulated a response. "We've actually had this conversation where you get done with tour and there's no pressure to think about the tour, you remember all the crazy stuff that happens—cause something crazy happens almost every time. But when you're in it, it's like tunnel vision..." explains Asli. "From where we're standing right now, everything just seems crazy, It's like your whole life is like waking up in a different city, driving to a different city, playing in a different city, going to sleep at the hotel, waking up in a different city…on repeat."
After their show tomorrow night at The Ballroom at Warehouse Live in Houston, they'll be able relax for a couple weeks before heading to AfroPunk Fest in Brooklyn (which runs August 23-24). With some free time on its way, Asli has hopes that they'll be able to start writing their next album, though they have no idea yet what it will be about.
