Obviously the visual performance element is important for your live shows. What inspired the bright colors, costumes and party atmosphere?
Connor:
Ty in the band got us going hard on the visual side. This started as a video project so we just go up there on stage and do a music video for every song. It gets ridiculous and Ty is to blame.

How is the decision making process different for you guys when it comes to your music vs music that you’ve helped to write for other artists? Are there different standards?
Connor:
Well Sam in the band is the only one who writes for other artists and there is definitely little rules and guidelines for Con Bro Chill. It’s got to a be a fun, upbeat positive, epic track. And sometimes we write too sensitive stuff or too weird of stuff. It’s a weird pocket we try to find and I’m sure it makes little sense to anyone.

You encourage your fans to dress up when they come out to one of your shows. For people who have never had the opportunity to check out your show, what are some essential items they should make sure they wear?
Connor:
When it doubt just find something dumb and neon and strap it on. Nothing gets rid of inhibitions like dressing up like an idiot. We do it, and so should you!

The next video you guys will be making is for, “Party Animal.” Do you have any plans for a tentative release date yet? What can everyone expect from this future release?
Connor:
No date yet, we have a script. It should be a fun video. We want to make it like a short story piece and not like a music video with singing and instruments etc. Hopefully we can step up our game!

What’s the best party that you have ever thrown?
Connor:
The DDP in Portland (See the Partied Out Video). We threw that party with Tom and Gary’s Decentralized Dance Party in Portland in January of 2012 and 3,000 people showed up. It was epic!

Everyone can download your We Came To Party EP for free. So, really, there are no excuses for people to not check out Con Bro Chill. What are some other ways that they can support the band?
Connor:
Come to the shows! Stay in touch with us, and tell the world. Just trying to spread the love.

What will you guys be up to after your March tour is over?
Connor:
Making videos and making sure we can put food on the table in our other side jobs.

Any words of wisdom for your fans, from the future?
Connor
LOVE LIFE!
