    “…as the band we just grew and evolved and not to say that we all evolved or moved in the same direction artistically but we did certainly grow as artists and I think we started to find out different parts of ourselves creatively that were going in different directions and because of that we were able to put it together […]

    “You know, for us it’s a very fun thing and we’re other people up there and because of what it is we get to live this other thing up there, this other animal that we can’t get anywhere else.

    “…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.
