Ready to rock out, the band Daughtry is performing July 4 at Schofield Barracks with front man Chris Daughtry at the mike. Their concert in Hawaii comes in between touring and working on their next album.

The former “American Idol” contestant answered a few questions in an exclusive Hawaii Army Weekly interview:

HAW: What are you most looking forward to enjoying while in Hawaii?

Daughtry: “We love being in Hawaii. We’ve been in Hawaii before, I wish we could do a whole tour playing here.”

HAW: What’s the best part about performing live?

Daughtry: “Nothing compares to it. You’re singing, maybe you’ve sung something multiple times, and with a crowd singing with you it never gets old. Songs that are 10 years old get a new life to it by playing them live.

HAW: Will fans hear any of the new songs you and the band are working on?

Daughtry: “With our writing process we’re trying to get something out and not rushing it. We want it to be right, so we’re not rushing. It will definitely be an album.”

HAW: Do you have any personal connections to service members?

Daughtry: “I have a lot of family members who have served in the military. My brother is in the National Guard. We love supporting (the military community) and bringing a smile to their faces as they escape from the daily grind.”

HAW: What did you do in Hawaii before?

Daughtry: “The last time we were here I had a few days, so I got in some surfing lessons. I love to surf and enjoy the beach.”

HAW: Do you have anything you want “Hawaii Army Weekly” readers to know?

Daughtry: “We can’t wait to see you! We’ll be doing new songs off our greatest hits album, our popular songs and we’re going to put out the best show. We’re really excited to see everyone.”
