Despite constant reassurances regarding my "biological clock," I've never considered having kids of my own. That isn't to say I'm repulsed by children--Rather, my child-rearing dreams have always revolved around the prospect of taking my nieces and nephews to Legoland. Or prom dress shopping.

Hamilton, along with writing partner Robert Earl Thomas, spent the better part of 2013 criss-crossing the US and Europe touring and writing their follow up...

Tales of criss-crossing the country in dilapidated tour vans full of sweaty rockstar hopefuls, record signings at legendary stores like Rough Trade in England, members of Pussy Galore being frightened when greeted by our pet pygmy goat; Kurt Cobain smashing his guitar and leaping off speaker towers. Our family photo albums show a very chubby baby on tour in Japan and Spain with the likes of Seaweed...
