Kettlehouse Amphitheater kicks off its summer 2024 schedule Wednesday, May 15 with alternative rock band NEEDTOBREATHE and folk band Judah The Lion.

NEEDTOBREATHE member Josh Lovelace was kind enough to call into the studio for an interview hyping up next week's show as they roll through their Caves World Tour.

The tour, their latest album (Caves), what it's been like working with Judah The Lion and more were covered during our brief conversation.

Here are some of the highlights (Q=my question, J=Josh's response)

Q: Do you still get tired from being on the road consistently?

J: "I think so, yeah. We've been doing this for a long time, almost 20 years, so it's kind of all we know. I definitely feel it a little more now than I did when I was 20."

Q: Is there a location you love going back to every tour?

J: "I really do love the Midwest. I always enjoy playing places that would be hard to get to if I didn't have a reason to come, but I really do love Montana."

Q: Talk to me about the album itself (Caves, 2023).

J: "This record is really kind of coming out of a crazy season in the world with the pandemic... There was this energy and excitement of being free and to be out. We wanted to write a big arena rock record and that's kind of what this record is. In a lot of ways, it's a metaphor. Talking about "coming out of the cave." It kind of was that for us."

Q: What's it like working with Judah The Lion?

J: "They are the best... These guys feel like brothers."
