“The van was completely broken but I knew that there was no way I was going to miss the show. So I was skateboarding down the side of this freeway. It was the only option I could think of and there are these eighteen-wheelers flying pass me on the side going like…I don’t know how fast they were going. But fast. And there is a part of me that knows if I steer wrong I’m going to be flattened by a truck, but there is another part of me that knows how cool this is, because every time a truck passes I get this gust of wind at my back and I start going faster.

Scene Point Blank recently corresponded with Hirsch about the band's almost breakup, where the band draws inspiration from, and the band's latest long-player, Heavier than Heaven, Lonelier than God.
