Up on the Sun: What is your measure of a successful tour? Gabriel: The van not blowing up was a very good start.

I feel like anytime that you see growth, a stronger connection with fans, making new fans; anytime that you're going to new cities and you're received well, even if it's one person at a bar or a thousand people at a venue. Anytime there's a positive response, I consider that a successful show. And when you have a run of that, I consider that a successful tour.

It was the first time that we actually saw new faces that were already engaged and intrigued by what the band was doing. Singing along to the songs, asking us to sing certain songs. That was exciting because a lot of the time we're rushing to set up our gear and we're hitting the streets trying to make new fans, but with this tour, there were already a lot of places where there was people waiting to see us.

Raf: The place where I tripped out the most was Alabama. We haven't played there in a few years and it was packed on a Tuesday night. We were like, "Yeah, this is pretty awesome."

I feel like every tour is successful because if you affect one person's view in life; that's all that matters. If it's 5,000, or 100 or just the bartender.
