Frontman Aaron Weiss talks about the unique concept behind Ten Stories, the influence of faith on his lyrics, and mewithoutYouís past/future.
"Something about selling tickets or CDís to hear someone sing about 'God' seems pretty off-point to me now. This has always been a muddled region to me, and I've always been conflicted about it. Itís only been recently that Iíve been able to stop trying to reconcile the two, and say plainly that I enjoy playing music for my own sake, for selfish reasons, and that as far as I know it has nothing at all to do with God. Iím not proud of the state Iím in, not proud of my ego-motivations or desire for approval. But it is a relief to not feel the need to pretend to be something Iím not, to parade myself as any kind of teacher or as righteous or holy in any way. I do want to be those things, but the more I examine my own thoughts, the further I feel from the ideals Iíve long been preaching about."
