    “…when we started we were just kids hanging out in the basement and just playing music for fun. Of course it’s still for fun, that hasn’t changed but I guess I’m 31 now, was 21 when we started and a lot of things have happened.

    “…a lot of bands with that amount of time keep making the same record over and over and over, but we don’t, we want people to think, we want people to move forward with us, and we definitely want to evolve because that’s what art is all about. You don’t paint the same picture twice. Ever.” From release: Dark clouds […]

    “We signed our first record deal in 1990 and that was for seven albums and we thought we’d have seven albums out by the end of the decade but twenty six years on we’re just doing our seventh one *laughs* but we did spend a couple of years re-establishing ourselves live, and it just felt the right time now to […]

    “This time we had all four of us in there at the same time when we were practising putting the songs together so there was no guess work on how it was going to sound when the bass guitar was added. Then we spent just a whole lot more time in pre-production just putting as many ideas as possible together…” […]

    “…the new foundation of the band is really solid, it’s such a situation that it’s a collaborative effort and it’s exciting, everybody’s throwing together ideas it’s not like one person running the ship, everybody’s pushing and pulling and it’s kind of odd for some people to be together so long and still respect each other as friends and then to […]
