HTH: You guys are once again putting on Woodstock Funfest. What made you guys decide to host a festival in your hometown?
Ben: Woodstock has been a great place for shows since we started, and there is strong support here for the metal scene. The crowds are always wicked, and it’s become somewhat of a hotspot for bands to come play. This is the third Funfest and it’s been great the last two times, and there’s a lot of anticipation this year, and a very strong lineup!

HTH: You guys recently released your new album Perpetuation interdependently. How has the reception been so far?
Eric: The reception has been great! We’ve received something like 30 reviews, most very positive, and have been charting on Canadian college radio for a few months. A lot of the reviews spoke precisely about what we intended to do with the album, which was harness our best elements in a more streamlined format, and write shorter but harder-hitting songs. We’re very happy!
