Ibanez: How has the tour with As I Lay Dying, Through the Eyes of the Dead, and Haste the Day been going?
Jeanne: The tour is amazing. All the shows are packed. All the kids coming out are really excited.
Ibanez: Have there been any favorite shows or cities for you?
Jeanne: I don't know. One of my favorites is definitely our hometown venue. We played the Palladium in Worcester. That was sold out, like 2,000 people. It was pretty unreal. It's kind of like a hometown dream.
Ibanez: What was the story behind you joining All That Remains?
Jeanne: At the first Sounds of the Underground, I worked for Prosthetic Records selling merch. I new the guys in All That Remains from home, and they had lost their bass player on that tour. So I said that I would step up and fill in. I've been in the band ever since.
Ibanez: How is playing bass in All That Remains different from the other bands you were in?
Jeanne: [Laughs] The amount of shows I'm playing is definitely different. I never went on tour before. I've been doing this for about two and a half years now, and I've been in this band longer than any other band.
Ibanez: When did you start playing Ibanez basses?
Jeanne: I've pretty much always been playing them. The first bass that I ever bought was a SDGR, which is what I play now. I've got little tiny hands [laughs]. Other basses just don't cut it.
Ibanez: What was it like recording with the band on The Fall of Ideals in 2006?
Jeanne: Oh man...We kind of wrote everything really quick, I would say over the span of two months. Then, we went in to record. I had only recorded like an EP before. So I didn't really have much studio experience. Adam [Dutkiewicz] was really amazing, and I was never nervous. I just went in and pretty much nailed everything. Adam is really funny, and he just makes you laugh the entire time. So I was really at ease.
Ibanez: What do you guys have coming up after the current tour?
Jeanne: We're going to start writing for the new album, which we hope to record in April. Some of it has already been written and just needs to be put together. Oli has been writing like a madman! Before we record, we're going to do another headliner in February or March.
Ibanez: Any words of advice for young musicians?
Jeanne: I guess it would be to never give up. Practice a lot, because you never know.
