17.06.2019 - When the Living Proof era started, I was an emotional and anxious wreck who was socially bullied. I was constantly sad and gave myself one thing to look forward to - surprising my friends back home at a @statechampsny show. It reminded me I was loved and the people who love me will always matter more than the boy who’s a coward. Champs have always been the band of silly adventures with my friends and while they continue to be that band, they are also the band that always gives me something to look forward to when I think I don’t, they’re the band who never fails at making me happy. Tonight was kind of a goodbye to the Living Proof era and I think crowdsurfing and stagediving until I ran out of breath, singing along with my pals and dancing like your local white dad is the best send off I could give to an album that changed my life. Terrible pun intended, but I’m a living proof, baby.
