Interview Ė Lovedrug
03/14/12 at 12:29 PM by Jonathan Bautts
Frontman Michael Shepard chats about the progression the band took on new album Wild Blood, falling in love with music again, what itís like to be without a label and staying off the beaten track.

"I donít like saying things in a way that other people have said them, which is really difficult to do. Itís sort of impossible. Thereís nothing new under the sun, and I realize that. If Iím going to write a love song, for instance, I donít want to use the typical metaphors and clichťs everyone else uses that you hear on the radio every single day that everyoneís sick of. I want to talk about it in a different way. Maybe Iím going to set it within a story about something thatís got nothing to do with a typical love story. Iím just always trying to think outside the box. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnít, so for better or worse Iím a little off the beaten track."
