When they independently released the aptly titled EP Ten Years in , it was easier to get back in the saddle than they expected. AJ is thankful that her older sister stepped up to make sure the new music was completed in spite of their schedules, which came in handy when the trigger needed to be pulled on production and lyric decisions. She made some executive decisions that were important and led to the sound of this music. Their love songs this time around are about their relationships with themselves as individuals and as sisters, moving away from the romance-based writing that was the focus of Ten Years. On May 1st, they launched a headlining tour in support of Sanctuary , playing theaters bigger than their last trek. For the sisters, building a touring career that can help them connect not only with fans who have been there since the beginning, but also with newcomers, has become their primary focus.

Aly & AJ Open Up About Their History With Mental Illness
They feed off of each other's energy with a push-and-pull ease — and, yes, even finish each other's sentences. It's a sister thing. Even that has been done as sisters. Aly, 31, said that being on the Phil of the Future set for her first major part as an actress was overwhelming. At the time, she was around the age of 14 and had never worked that many hours every day consistently for an acting gig. She saw a psychiatrist who later prescribed antidepressants and helped her find more structure in her daily life to help combat the overload of stress. Consistency, she explained, was good for her mental health.
