If you caught the This Is Gospel tour with Panic! At The Disco in Salt Lake, you probably heard Magic Man for the first time as one of the openers. This five-piece band from Boston sat down with Richie before their first show on the tour and after their pre-show workout. (Seriously though, Justine on synths/keys was leading the guys through a series of push-ups and jumping jacks while we set up. The guys gave up.) Learn about the forming of the band, their Fox Den, and the most surreal moment of being in the band in Richie T's latest interview for Meet The Bands.

Here's a clip from the interview:
— The Fox Den —
Alex: To be fair, an important part of the songwriting phase was first nesting and building our little home studio and making sure that it was a very comfortable and inspiring place. So we spent the first couple months just collecting all sorts of weird things; we called it the fox den. We had taxidermy foxes and…
Justine: If you know where the foxes are now, please call Alex Caplow, they are missing. Not joking. They’re gone.
Alex: Someone stole them, I think someone threw a crazy party when we weren’t there and walked off with the foxes.
Kids can be cruel. The internet can be cruel. Your neighbourhood butcher can be cruel. You brother is cruel. Your dog once bit you. The waiter at ______________ crop-dusted your table when dropping off appetizers and your mom says you should have been married by now.
Hell, a guy even makes it on national television and though he doesn't win he gets the news delivered by Heidi Klum. That kind of winning IS losing.
For Richie T even that kind of lose/winning leaves a guy open for insult to injury by some girl he doesn't even know...on Facebook.
If you want to send Richie words of comfort and encouragement you can stand by Richie's side by emailing him at Richie@X96.com. You can even email him if you have an anniversary coming up and need a singing telegram.
We though about holding a candlelight vigil, but we figured since the FCC makes us do so much PSA broadcasting each year anyway, we made this video instead to kill two (maybe 5) birds with one announcement:
There's camera crews following me around, trying to get all the video they can. The title is going to be Walking Tall, the Wookie, or something like that. We don't have a release date yet.
