One Question Interviews: Arms Aloft

Seth Gile (Arms Aloft)
SPB:Do you do anything to minimize the cost of gas while on tour?

Gile: The best way to minimize the cost of gas at this point is to book a smart route and keep yourself as busy as possible. There's no way to change the fact that it's 4000 miles from our home to the west coast and back. And that's going to cost a shitload of money. But what you CAN control is whether you play 5 shows to get out there or 15. If you can get two shows in a night, take them. If you can get tagged onto a house show last minute on what was supposed to be a night off, do it. And maybe most/more importantly, just don't expect your punk band to make you any money. Gas is expensive. Not working for a month is expensive. Just have a good time and you won't care whether you make it home broke or not.
