You’re doing a Midwest tour this month. Will you be doing a more extensive run in the fall?
Hoopes: Yeah, we’re actually working on a few options right now that we’re really excited about. One, I’m not even sure if I should say, but it’s 99% sure and we’re talking about doing a co-headline with Motion City. Maybe it will be confirmed by the time you put this up. I mean, literally, it could get confirmed today. We won’t announce anything until it’s done, but we’ve never toured with them. We’ve always talked about it because we’re friends with them and we love their music.
That’s a perfect match.
Hoopes: Yeah, I think it will be really fun. I think it will be really cool, since we’ve never toured with them before, and we’re crossing our fingers that that one goes through.
