20 – THE BOUNCING SOULS talk COMET, adulthood, their 20 year anniversary, and a potential RISE RECORDS side project

The other members of the band couldn’t handle Greg and I’s awesomeness and opted not to be in the photo. Can’t say I blame them.

HELLO FRIENDS! I can’t believe I got to sit down with one of my all time favorite and most influential bands and bullshit with them about life the universe and everything. We begin this interview with Bryan, and slowly but surely all 4 members of the band join us. We talk about adulthood, having kids, day jobs, getting old. We talk about their 20th Anniversary shows and the influence it had on their new album COMET. We talk about Rise Records and Pete talks about the potential BS side project: WHEN THE BATS FLY THROUGH!

Special Thanks to K8 Hiltz from Chunksaah for helping setting this up. K8 is GREAT!
We open up today’s episode with “Baptized,” the first song off COMET. We end the episode with the album’s title track: “Comet.”

In today’s episode we talk a little bit about the interview I did with the Bouncing Souls in 2001 or 2002 on the HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION Tour. That interview will be at the bottom of this post. Oddly enough, I was 20 years old when I did that interview. This is episode 20 of the Podcast! Woo hoo!
