The “Landslide” singers sat down with Zane Lowe of Apple Music’s “Beats 1” to talk about their new upcoming tour. It has been four years since the group went on a major tour and Martie Maguire said their duties as parents took priority.

“Well the kids — our nine kids, collectively — are why we paused for so long,” Maguire explained. “I’m finding out that teenagers are a lot harder than babies.”

“Yeah, you know, my boys are actually really supportive and really excited for the music, and they are fans,” Maines continued. “They’re not too cool to like their mom’s job.”
