By intentions I mean that we wanted to push oursleves, experiment, and build songs that we though had a unique place in the world. Not everyone would agree with me on this, but I think that music like any art has it’s basic likable elements, but really makes a piece of music, or art, or whatever, special is the elements of it that make it unique.
Pat: And then on the last day we – because we were doing the whole thing completely live so we were set up. So we recorded an EP of punk songs as a joke.
Jared: Like a five song EP of punk songs.
Pat: And then we did a Neil Young tune. And then we did a punk version of one of the tunes on the record. We just had some fun at the end.
Jared: Yeah. It was way different than last time. Instead of having 30 songs we wanted to record, we only had 14, 15. Once we got them narrowed down – it was a way more focused effort this time.

We’re off the label. We’re doing this all ourselves. We’re going to do everything ourselves. At this point, we’re not being looked at and have no offers. I don’t know if we would take an offer at this point. We’re in a cool position because we got a lot out of being on the label like good tours and a fan base. Now we have that to work with.

I just pay attention. If there's buzz or enough people recommend something to me, I'll listen most the time. We also take submissions for Showcases, and that's a great way to find new bands. We covered many more small bands in our beginnings, but slowly transitioned away from that due to demand. About two years ago we brought out Showcase to help smaller bands as best we could. It's been a success.
