We love to perform. We'd rather be out on a tour, whether it's opening for someone or headlining, than sitting around at home. We're constantly trying to expand our fan base, so it's important to "seize the day" when a big tour opportunity comes around. Touring with Kelly Clarkson and Fergie was different for us, but we met a lot of excited people who will hopefully join the Rooney army.
The National Light's Jacob Berns discusses the bloody themes and brief songs of the band's "The Dead Will Walk, Dear" and the future of the band. "At one point, the National Lights had the best of touring intentions. And I still do, to a degree. However, those who recorded on the album have moved to opposite ends of the country to work on their own, primary projects."
"I felt really lucky that I was able to make some phone calls, find out who was in town that I wanted to do it. I was able to convince them to come down and to dedicate their time, which was great. Cause you never know a project's going to come along, I think there's 18 total people on the record, about eight or nine in a relatively regular contribution spot that did a lot of stuff. I had a lot of friends who thought it was an exciting project and they all wanted to contribute. Thatís when you feel blessed with your life. 'Oh yeah, I live in LA and I do this for a living and these unbelievable musicians I can call up and they can come up to the studio and play.' We had a lot of fun, getting to do it that way."
