Check out this Hollywire exclusive backstage interview!
Also touring with talented bands Parachute and The Miggs, it was a week and a half into the tour and the band was eager and excited for the show! While the T's were just moments away from hitting the stage at the House of Blues -- they shared with Hollywire their rituals before they perform, lead guitar and vocals Tim G. Lopez claimed their backstage rituals always include 'Miller Light Beer!' Which of course hadn't quite kicked in yet, due to the fact it was more or less pretty relaxed backstage! The fella's claimed it was still early!
The Wonder's of the Younger tour -- named after the bands most recent album encompassed a noticeable change in the bands overall sound. Lead singer Tom Higgenson explained his inspiration behind the album,"It's a bit of a concept album for us ya know. I saw Cirque du Soleil performance of a show called 'O' in Las Vegas a couple years ago and I was just really inspired. it reminded me of movies like The Goonies and Back to the Future. So we had the idea to kind of make an album that kind of that same feeling of nostalgic yes growing up kind of mood."
