In an interview with Australian music publication Time Off, bassist Dustin Hawthorne of Canadian act Hot Hot Heat explains the method behind his band's madness of non-stop touring.
While such an unforgiving schedule may play havoc with the lives and sanity of some people, Hawthorne doesn’t seem to mind the lifestyle.
“No, it’s fine with me. I don’t really have any vested interest in going home,” Hawthorne says. “I don’t have a girlfriend or anything like that and my family lives in a different city than I do, so I don’t mind. There are times when it is trying but for the most part being on tour is fine.”
Currently in the middle of a European tour, Hot Hot Heat will hit the Land Down Under next week.
