“I shouldn’t have been able to do as many shows as we did, if I’m honest about it, if I’m brutally honest about it,” he admitted.

“Going out and putting that happy smile on my face and singing the songs, honestly, sometimes it was like putting on one of those costumes, going out there and, underneath the costume, people don’t really see what’s going on,” he added.

As much as it killed to see the band go their separate ways, we’re definitely glad the guys are getting the chance to breathe, branch out, and work on their own sounds.
