Jez Speaks to The Vine

Ahead of doves tour of Australia, Jez spoke to The vine.com.au about the new album and his past memories of touring Australia.

Four years is a long time in the music industry and even longer when it comes to technology. What was it like coming back and suddenly needing a MySpace, a Facebook, Twitter, free downloads et al?

We literally went away and the whole music landscape changed. Giving away a free download was a new one for us. It’s pretty mad really but once you get your head around it, the whole new digital domain makes sense in its own strange little way. It’d be nice to get paid for each record we sell, but most people seem to download it for free now, don’t they?

And then they justify it by saying ‘it’s okay, I’ll see them when they play live” but you can only play so many shows a year.

A lot of bands make their money that way but for us to come to Australia, it costs twice the amount we make from tickets. It’s a fucker, man. To be honest I wish our Australian tour was longer but somebody didn’t put their neck out. Some bright spark reckoned we should only do four shows but I think we could have done the whole east coast.
