"I just don't want to cry so much anymore," says the band of the writing process and theme behind the new album. "Lots of horrible things happen to us all friends and lovers move on or drop dead, everything changes right under our feet, and just when you start to understand something, you realize that you have no clue and it slips away. But all this pain and conflict allows us to come back with a bigger heart, with the ability to laugh in the face of any demon, to expose yourself, literally and metaphorically, to anything and feel good about it and yourself. Life is shit and if we all wink and laugh, then we can enjoy the ephemeral moments that bring us pleasure. Music brings me that pleasure so I try and do it as much as possible."
