“Our purpose as a band is very different than other bands. We’re not necessarily a one-genre band,” Ashton shared with Billboard. “I don’t think anybody really is anymore, but that goes back to who our influences are.”

He continues, “…I think our purpose as a band is to make whatever comes whatever we’re influenced by. We’re not one set thing.”
