INTRO BY KAT VISTI
INTERVIEW BY CAMI LIBERTY
Vesperteen is beginning on a US headlining tour throughout the midwest and east coast. The Together For The Winter Tour is closing out an exciting year for Vesperteen which included a 40 date US headlining tour this past summer and support dates for bands like The Griswolds, The Wrecks, and Twenty One Pilots! We sat down with Vesperteen to learn more about the tour life and his new song It Will Never Be Enough.
You just got off tour in support for The Wrecks. How was that?
VESPERTEEN: "It was a ton of fun!! We hit some of my favorite cities. I'd say a fun highlight was doing the Halloween show in Denver."
You also just started your headlining Together For The Winter Tour – what cities are you most looking forward to performing in from knowing how the crowds are from your summer tour?
VESPERTEEN: "Man, the crowds are so great in every city. I love the energy that every one of them brings. I do love seeing the cities that we play in and exploring them. NYC has always been a favorite. Probably 'cause it's easy to always see something new and different each time 'cause there's SO much to see."
Do you prefer summer or winter tours more?
VESPERTEEN: "Hmmm.. weather wise I probably prefer traveling in the summer. But I'm excited for this winter one cause we get to be Christmas-y!"
On December 1st you released your new song It Will Never Be Enough – can you tell us a little about the song and the inspiration behind it?
VESPERTEEN: "Yeah, the song came together pretty quickly. But the theme is something I've been contemplating for some time. It's about feeling like no matter how much I gain or achieve I will never be satisfied. And how I feel like I'm well aware of that but I still can't stop striving and reaching."
Coming into the New Year after tour, what can we expect from you?
VESPERTEEN: "In January I will be recording plenty of new music, mostly in LA. I'd love to get as much done there as possible and then hit the road again."
