"I had played in bands since I was 15 or 16 and by the time I moved out to New York and tried some stuff, none of the bands really clicked so I went to law school, which was something I'd planned on doing," Perry tells Spinner. "Halfway through school, I started jamming with my brother. On a lark, we started this thing and it started to go pretty well. I was in the middle of law school and I'd already sunk like god knows how many thousands of dollars into going, so I stayed in school."
Luckily for Perry, his firm, where he works in Intellectual Property law, allows him to do his job from the road as needed. A few months back, he even spent the commute to and from a gig in New Haven, Conn., working on his BlackBerry. "I'm kind of used to it now but I guess from an outside perspective it's kind of insane," Perry says. "It's definitely intense. It can be really stressful. Obviously, we're serious about the band and we're all ready to do it full-time in the future. I'm lucky to work for a place, they're very understanding. As long as I get the work done and they know in advance that I'm working outside the office, it's OK."
