Touring is my religion. Music is all-encompassing - my religion.

When I was a kid, I grew up watching musicals.

When I was a kid, we had acoustic guitars, a piano in the house. I made a drum kit out of buckets in my garage.

I like surprising myself. I don't want to do the norm, do what I'm always known to do, write how I like to write.

Other bands in Vegas hated us because we hadn't played shows and paid our dues. Publications called us out, saying we were just a put-together band, claiming we had ghostwriters. It made me so happy, the fact that everyone was hating on us so hard.

I always want to keep challenging myself to do something that I don't even have the foresight to know what it's going to be.

I haven't mowed a lawn in quite a while, but I remember hating that when I was growing up. To please Dad, you have to get it right, and that's the thing. You have to please Dad.

I still use a lot of good values from growing up in the Church, and there was a sense of community. But you were also being heavily judged by people that wanted to look down on you for not being as great as they are.

Synthesizers were looked at as stealing the soul of music, but then there were these new bands who used it to contradict that idea.

I know I'm not a buff dude in any sense, but I'm more than comfortable with my body.

I'm always creating. Whether I'm writing a lyric or making a beat, every day I'm doing something.

I've always been that person: If it gets into my head, I've got to do it until I get it perfect - a perfectionist's attitude.

I learned to play drums to the 'Blue Album.'

I'm a big fan of electronic dance music.

'Miss Jackson' is about something that actually happened to me when I was younger. I hadn't really talked about it, and I felt that if I didn't, I would keep thinking about it; it would drive me crazy.

You can't just be a musician; you have to be an entertainer and perform and act just to hit the bar.

With an older generation, there's some weight carried with the Beatles. There's almost like an untouchable, god-like force field around them.

I know Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons. We went to the same church. I'm pretty sure he's still Mormon. I left the church long ago.

Some of my favourite record and album covers and stuff have all been the singer, and they create a character, and they dress up a little bit.

My favorite electric guitar would have to be my Duesenberg. I've named her 'Dolores,' and she sings like an operatic menace.

Luckily, my wife is amazing. She's one of the few people in my life I'm completely honest with. I've told her everything about my past. She knows me inside and out. There's no secrets at all.

I guess if I had to classify myself, I'd say I'm straight.

You can create some soul out of something that's electronic or mechanical.

I learned about being positive from my parents. They're the most positive people I've ever known.

I'm a pretty good drummer. I'm pretty good at guitar, bass and piano. I can play accordion; I'm not virtuoso. I've played cello before. My sister played it, and I know how to play it, but I'm not the best. Violin is kind of the same thing.

I played trumpet in middle school, and then I had to get braces, so I had to stop playing trumpet and start playing drums.

I've just gotten better at partying. I haven't stopped or slowed down by any means. If anything, it's increased. But if anything, it's just more fun now.

I've done a collaboration with Action Bronson, which is, like, the coolest thing I've done so far.

There's always nerves when you're releasing something.

I have smaller hands, so it's nice being a littler guy, having a guitar that fits my body type.

Having a very serious thematic element in the lyrics and then juxtaposing with something really triumphant and just a big beat to dance to is a nice contrast to having a dark message.

All through my senior year, luckily, I didn't have too many hard classes, just a lot of electives. I was able to spend most of my time at the practice space.

Change is always a little bit strange.

I fell into music, but I just needed to find the right moment to jump into acting.

It's not really a popular consensus to sing Sinatra - which I love! And I just think it's so cool that he disliked rock n' roll so much.

I used to be unusually short, and I think I'd prefer that to being unusually tall.

I don't listen to a ton of rock music.

It's so crazy to think about touring with Weezer because that's a band that I grew up with.

My capacity for wanting to create has never faltered. If anything, it's gained momentum.

People who stand in the way of where people are walking - I hate that.

I'm so excited for 30. I hear it's OK. I'll probably do the same stuff, but I'll be more comfortable being who I am.

I had only heard about Fall Out Boy a couple months before we contacted him. I heard 'Saturday' and 'Grand Theft Autumn' and thought the lyrics were smart and the singer was insanely talented.

I fell in love with Sinatra when I was very young.

Nobody had song titles that were as long as ours. A lot of it was just inside jokes.

I love traveling, I love waking up in a new city every day.

I mostly listen to things that are so different because there's something so intriguing about trying to understand where someone is coming from.

There are bands like Imagine Dragon, Grouplove, and fun. who have come along and shifted the way that rock can sound.

I didn't even go to graduation.

I've never considered myself a lyricist, but I have stuff to say.
