Bandersnatch headliners talk influences, dream collaborations and returning to Upstate New York.
The NewsHouse: You guys formed out of the band Gentlemen Hall. Is Tribe Society a reimagining of it, or are you focusing on more of a different style?
Brad: This is a big turning point for Gentlemen Hall. We used to have another singer, but he left, and then we moved to New York, and just kind of started over, started fresh. It’s a little different in sound because we’re always exploring and stuff, so it kind of became its own thing with the five of us instead of the six people in Gentlemen Hall.

This is an age where artists struggle to stay relevant and the audiences’ attention can fade as fast as a breakout artists’ hit single drops on the Billboard charts. But some artists that have been around since the '70s can still draw large crowds to venues like the Carrier Dome and Madison Square Garden. Billy Joel is one of those artists. What is the difference between him and today’s infamous 'one hit wonders?'
The failure to complete a music critique exercise, and the realization that it's OK.
I am a failure.
What's worse is I failed at something that I wanted to do and that was easy. An inexcusable failure. I failed to listen to one album I'd never heard every day in February and tweet about it. What I did, though, was listen to about half a month's worth of new music, tweet a little and prove to myself that there's nothing I hate more than having my listening habits dictated, even if I'm the one imposing sanctions.
