Dave Fogel - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

Touring With KISS

"This is one of the best tours we've ever done with another band. We get on so well. I think because of where the industry is at in this day and age. The fact that there's only a few bands left you know that didn't kind of completely split up and - we've not done any reunion tours and KISS have still been going. They've still been kind of keeping their message strong and we have and I think there's something that we both recognise in each other and it's really good. It's kind of like a team."

2015 Studio Album

"That'll be out next year. Again we're finishing that off. We've got like 15 songs on the go and they're all in different various degrees of completion. Yeah we're gonna bang that out for next year. We didn't think we were gonna do an album. We thought the album is dead and all this stuff. We're just gonna go in and write maybe stuff for an EP or something but we got 12 songs which is so rare for us. So if you've got a flow going like that you don't stop it so we said OK. The EP is all nice and that but we've got an album here. So there you go."
