  • GREATEST HITS: A proposed set list for one of the Rock*A*Teens reunion shows hangs on a mounted clipboard during a recent practice.

Ballard Lesemann: I wouldn't be surprised if he's got some new songs up his sleeve.

Henry Owings: I do know that that brain is holding a fuckload of music.

Chris Lopez: No one has expressed any desire [to make new music]. We've got our hands full trying to figure out what we used to do.

Will Joiner: I haven't played rock 'n' roll for like 10 years. I haven't picked up an electric instrument since 2004.

Ballard Lesemann: The first rehearsals we did, within 10 minutes on the beat-up old equipment we had at Justin's house, it sounded like it did back in the old days. It was a weird feeling, right back where it was.

Justin Gage: I don't think what they were doing can be dated at all. That's kind of the beauty of it. I'm hoping their shows will be as great or greater than 10 to 15 years ago.

Chris Lopez: It's going to be as much about our band and the music as the people out there. It's going to be like a family reunion. It's going to be perfect, perfect, perfect.
