"Rock 'n' roll is a not a genre, it's a way of life." Just coming off a list of West Coast concert dates, Smith said Shinedown and Disturbed were on the same bill not too long ago.
"It's always fun to hang out with other bands on the road," he said.
When asked which song was his personal favorite to perform live, he said it was difficult to choose just one. "I don't love any one of them more than any other one." But he does love to surprise an audience.
While playing out west, Smith said the band performed a different version of "In Memory" from the band's debut album, "Leave a Whisper," that the crowed was "enamored by." "One night we played 'Through the Ghost' which is the last song on 'Amaryllis,' and people were really stunned that we did that live," Smith said.
"Some nights different songs have different personalities." The one song he still enjoys performing live is "Sound of Madness" from the 2008 album of the same name.
"It's still one of those songs where the crowd just gets set off on that song," he said.
"This show is always put together really, really well," Smith said in a recent telephone interview."The audience is always over the top." Smith said the South Jersey/Philadelphia audience "embraces the lifestyle that is rock 'n' roll." "Rock 'n' roll is more of an attitude and a spirit than a genre of music," he said.
