Andrew Hathaway of Robotic Pirate Monkey: "For any artist, a move is the next stage"

Robotic Pirate Monkey started as a trio in Boulder and has since built up a national presence as a touring duo, giving a fresh new face to dance music. Working through the kinks of no longer living in the same town, Andrew Hathaway and Matt Berryhill are preparing for the release of their next effort, the Booty Snatch EP, this summer, and hitting the road with Terravita. We spoke with Hathaway, who recently relocated to L.A., about what it's like to work remotely, what's happened with RPM in the past few months, and what the act is looking to do in the new year.
