I had this really inspiring night here in the studio and basically wrote seven songs in an hour and a half, but it took me two years to extract them and rewrite them and perfect them and put them into album form.
It’s not like there’s a billion fans that are into what we’re doing. It’s not that kind of thing. It just felt right to do. The climate definitely felt right as far as getting back out there
I like the contradiction of a really raw and simple material combined with these fragmented pieces. That’s how I see my life and people in general.
What is this feeling inside of me that I want to share, to explore, and to work on? For me it was about, after working in advertising for a number of years, how do people buy into bullshit?
Sometimes it happens right in the room, right in the moment. Sometimes the final product sounds nothing like where the first idea started.
It definitely feels like this really positive, collaborative experience where we’re all on the same page.
It comes from a dark place, but when I’m making it, it’s a way for me to process. I’m laughing as I’m making it, but I’m being half-serious too. I think for me, it’s more about anger, venting and satire.
