Justin Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack: "We've been so lucky and fortunate, and I don't feel under-appreciated, but you always want to be liked in your hometown. I'm really excited because we've been doing a lot more in Minneapolis. I want people to like what I do, but I don't want it to be forced. If they don't like it, it makes me sad, but I'm okay. I'll deal with it. There's a lot of kick-ass things here. To just be mentioned along with the likes of P.O.S., Low, Lifter Puller -- that would be amazing."
