What's your reasoning for putting their EP as their best? I mean, not to really call you out or anything but I've always found it odd when people claim an EP has the band's best work. I believe that's happened a new times in relation to Gaslight.

It's pretty much EP = Sink or Swim and then everything else but those 4 songs are just fucking PERFECT man. I could listen to them on repeat for hours.

You actually might be able to answer this one: "You Got Lucky," Tom Petty cover?

After the success of American Slang and with Horrible Crowes as an outlet for a different style, what is your new ambition as a band? Is there anything you specifically hope to accomplish with this album?

Can you touch on any lyrical themes that run through Handwritten?

How did Brendan O'Brien's production approach on Handwritten differ from Ted Hutt's methods on previous records? In what way, if any, did that affect the direction of this album?

In what ways did The Horrible Crowes impact your Gaslight songwriting? Lyrically speaking, will some songs on Handwritten be as dark and heavy as some of the content on Elsie?

Out of your whole catalog (excluding "Handwritten" obviously) do you have a favorite song you've written? How about a song that's the most fun to play?

People are constantly making the Bruce Springsteen comparison when mentioning Gaslight. Who are some more obscure influences on your songwriting, or musicians who Gaslight fans might be surprised to see that you're influenced by?
