How does it feel to be on the road together again?
Aly & AJ: It feels like home to us! We have such an amazing band & crew that we’ve been lucky enough to tour with in the past, so everyone feels very comfortable with each other. Touring is like a mixture of camping, a travelling circus & a film set all in one. It’s unbelievably unique in its experience. We’re grateful that we have each other though – we can’t imagine touring as a solo artist.

What are some of the key inspirations behind ‘Sanctuary’?
Aly & AJ: Redemption, rebirth, depression, forgiveness, admiration & longing are all themes we touch on throughout Sanctuary. We were inspired by past songs of the 80s. Those songs really make you feel something in your bones. The production quality is very unique. Songs back then felt like an experience. That’s how “Sanctuary” should make you feel.

What are some of your favourite memories growing up together?
Aly & AJ: Role-playing together in our backyard for hours until the sun went down. That’s probably my favourite memory. We were super imaginative children growing up. We could keep ourselves entertained for days between just the two of us. I also miss living together & shooting the film we made “Weepah Way For Now” in the house we rented in Laurel Canyon. It was a really magical time in our lives.

How do you both find your own sanctuary after being on the road or working hard for so long?
Aly: Traveling is a big one for me. Even if it’s a weekend trip to Big Sur with the dogs & my husband. Taking a bath, reading a book, going to the spa are all things I find calming after being on the road. Also, organizing my things & donating items of clothing that I don’t tend to wear anymore gives me a lot of joy! Living out of a suitcase for 3 months puts everything into perspective.

AJ: For me, it’s being outdoors, away from a major city. Our Mom lives in a beautiful area up North and being able to visit her after tour just helps me reset. Especially knowing that I’m about to go right into filming. Being around nature, taking time with my boyfriend, reading a good book, going on a great hike. Those are the things that bring me back to life.
