Cali of Mix 98.5 interviewed Stefan Lessard on June 24th, 2008 prior to their show in Mansfield, MA. Cali (a long time DMB fan) has interviewed Stefan and other band member numerous times over the years.
Stefan discussed the following topics:
- Yukon Kornelius
- Playing Cover songs
- The impact of Tim Reynolds on tour
- Reason for Butch Taylor not touring with DMB
- Progress of "New Songs" and the overall completion of the upcoming studio album
- Back in the Studio in October
- Touring South America in the fall and a possible future World Tour
- Explanation of the fire at Stefan's house
The most notable items discussed was the fact that the "new songs" are almost finished, but not quite ready to be played live. Stefan also mentions going back in the studio in October to continue with the completion of the new studio album.
Also noted was that fact that DMB will be playing in South America in the fall. There has been no official word by DMB's management, so it seems Stefan beat them to the punch. He also explain the bands overall ambition to follow with a possible world tour next year. time will tell.
