I didn’t want this to be some ridiculous solo project. I sure as fuck didn’t consider Pat, Nate and William by backing band. I realized this was a bizarre foundation for a band, but that’s exactly what my goal was: to have another band. We got together and it was soon apparent that this was to be that next band. I wanted everyone to have the freedom to do whatever they wanted to do within the songs, each member as important as the next.
