“We are loving the new album, the material off the new album. We’re enjoying putting the new material into the show. The audience is really digging the new stuff and that hasn’t always been the case. This is a good tour so far.” Taylor also revealed the secret to how the band manage to stay together and produce relevant music for so long “We rejuvenate each other,” he said. “It’s part of why the band is still together, I think.
