Twin Peaks recently sat down with the internet to discuss their new-ish dream tourmobile, their big tour kick-off party, and all of the exciting happenings about to take place in the not so distant future.

World Wide Web: Twitter and Facebook have been ablaze with Twin Peak's Indiegogo campaign! Did you reach your goal?

Twin Peaks: As a matter of fact we totally did! The name of our tourmobile is Samuel L. Vanson. He is a cinnamon brown Chevy Astro with a few miles on his wheels (a lot of miles actually) and a heart of gold. He also doesn't take shit from anybody.

WWW: For those who don't know a lot about crowd funding can you explain how it works and how it allowed you to reach your goal?

TP: Crowd funding is an amazing grassroots approach to raising money for a wide variety of causes and projects. Musicians typically use sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter to raise money to create albums and other musically related projects. We had mentioned to a friend that we'd really like to have our own van for touring this spring but seeing as we were both dramatically short of funds he suggested that we try out a crowd funding platform (we really didn't want to turn to prostitution). Instead of having a few people donate large sums of money to a project it allows people to donate small sums, which eventually add up to the complete goal. We had 37 funders who collaboratively helped us achieve our goal of purchasing Sammy. Funders are able to choose perks along with their donations e.g., house concerts, merch, topless dances, etc.

WWW: So now that you have a semi-reliable vehicle where will he be taking you this spring/summer?

TP: After our tour kick-off party at the Lido on April 27th we will be making our way down to Vancouver Island with stops in Rolla, Prince George, Kamloops, Clearwater, Sunnybrae...check the tour schedule it's all there;) Following that we will be booking shows in Alberta and the Kootenay region on our way down to Vancouver Island Musicfest in Comox, BC. We have a few local shows booked for June including the Sweetwater 905 Festival in Rolla, BC and a double bill will Picture the Ocean at the Kilnhouse Studio (run by the gorgeous and talented Shannon Butler).

WWW: When can we expect to hear some new music from Twin Peaks?

TP: Funny you should ask! We're going to be making a stop in Kelowna on the way down to Vancouver Island in May to see our good friend Barry Mathers. Barry was integral in making our first EP come together (almost like magic) and we are hoping to lay down a live off the floor track with him while we are there.

WWW: Any closing thoughts?

TP: We look forward to seeing you on the road!
