Always so nice to hear from you. Two questions: are you familiar with French act Fragrance? Why no Leathers for Substance Festival? Okay, one more: what's new with Leathers? *ACTORS os good, but Leathers is better 🤠

Getting out my leather jackets is one of my favorite actions of early fall, but I have so many I can never decide which one to wear. I suppose it’s not a bad problem to have. Best of luck with the tour!

What’s everyone’s go-to snack & drink when you all are running between cities? Think we all know Jason’s is Red Bull (2 of them, right? 1 as a snack, 1 as a drink? 😆). What do you other 3 go for?

Question:

As Leathers writes more material do you think there will come a point when these Actors and Leathers double feature shows will become too exhausting to do, or is it more a case of “well both bands are technically at this festival anyways so we might as well”

Question:

In a lot of ways, it really feels like the post-punk scene in Vancouver is about to explode the way the grunge scene did in Seattle in the 90s.

There is a plethora of extremely talented bands and there is starting to be a sizeable variety, even in the post pandemic paradigm, of venues and promoters willing to host live shows for these bands, which are almost always well attended.

Actors seems to be the figurehead band at the moment driving this spearhead. Do you feel that way yourselves, and do you get the impression people in other cities get that impression of you?

When you play w/ both Actors & Leathers together, do feel compelled to change your attire / aesthetic between the sets to separate their identities?
