Name a better duo… I’ll wait!
Aly and AJ have officially completed their summer tour in support of their newest EP, ‘Sanctuary,’ which dropped in May. The sisters chatted with Mood Magazine for a special digital issue feature and discussed the EP, touring, and putting out music.
Speaking on the summer tour that just wrapped, the sisters expressed how “exciting” it was for them to finally share the new EP with fans and see them learn the songs at each show. “It felt so good,” they said.
“There’s truly nothing like being on stage. Sharing this new EP for the first time live was insane. Fans were learning the music as we were experiencing it in a live setting for the first time. It made it really special for us.”
As to what their favorite parts of touring are? Meeting the fans, of course! When asked about wrapping up the European Leg of the tour and what their favorite part of it was, they said “Meeting the fans face to face. Especially fans of ours who are overseas and have supported the music from afar for years now. London, Paris & Amsterdam were some of our favorite cities to play in.”
The ladies also revealed what it’s like for them, personally, to see the reactions and hear the stories from fans who have been touched by the music they put out. “It’s incredibly emotional to see how our songs have affected people over the years,” they said.
“It makes us perform better, feeling the excitement from our crowd. We feed off that energy. Some nights it’s emotional. Especially when we perform “No One”. That moment is just us and an acoustic guitar. Eventually, the audience ends up joining us for the last chorus and we all sing it together.”
