When asked if the band is starting over again
Darrel- "All we do is go through hiatuses, we have been together 37 years and we really never break up but we roll through the times and sometimes call them hiatuses and we go to other projects. We have been back touring for a solid 5 years. every year we do at least 20 shows."

Russ- "It's so new for us we really don't know, we are really excited about it and happy to be with Dave Ellefson."

When asked about the new live album and plans for a new studio album
Russ- All the classics will be on, something from every album is on there, this live album is just a stop gap because we have to deliver a new studio album next year 2019 for EMP
