In case you were still curious about how the Toadies fared at ACL this year--and our own coverage wasn't enough--well, you might wanna check out the above video. You'll get some footage of the band's Sunday afternoon performance on the festival's main stage, and a few glances at the massive crowd that gathered for the show to boot.
But perhaps most worth your while in the above clip? The fact that frontman Vaden Todd Lewis lets it spill that "more than likely" the Toadies will be working on their fourth release at some point down the line. To which lead guitarist Clark Vogeler quickly responds, "We gotta wait for that seven-year window again, though."
Which is funny, yeah--but not as funny as the disdain with which Lewis treats this poor interviewer. That's pure gold.
