The spread bands like. Yeah. Better religion social distortion -- I was just completely. Surrounded -- it -- all this you know punk rock culture and stuff. And you know that I can become president and but -- being from from Hollywood -- -- -- analysts -- -- that you're familiar with them and we -- like. All are implemented as far as heavy metal don't sort of black status Metallica and and we just started mixing together we didn't we didn't know any better like I didn't realize that there are that. A difference between that unguarded seen the metal scene and they realize they're divided I guess I should -- -- -- vowed -- -- -- music -- But you're -- Let's say -- it's funny did you bring up the OC which I'm pretty familiar with that area and and it it it is an area where boy it makes you wanna be rebellious because I got people I got some friends that you know that that brief the stigma that big shopping here they call which is called fashion island in every calls a -- island America. It's you know it's it is it is it is pretty cool you're in the middle of all that. A lot of classic nature NL I'd probably a lot of folks lie mean. And -- like I guys if you did you have that he's like I -- I gotta fight against this because it is so not a real area of the world are -- real humanity. Yeah you know it is definitely a weird place because you go on TV BC television shows like the real outside Orange County EP. GOP showed them. And now it's. It's so it's so crazy to me because you know having grown up all over the country -- on. And the world that that matters you have a whole lot like that there's a lot of that but these do you kind of real here. So grow up being trauma -- never got much we we are part of PS.

No -- worked really hard to hurt the small -- we grew up in the south and boom there they need it for granted we were definitely rebellious kids. And we found comfort in each other and it was found. You know there there at all archived biker out there and -- -- connecting playing music to your loved it. And there's stand up there that appreciate what we're doing and you know it's early early opera because.
