An interview with Happy Body Slow Brain can be seen here.
QuoteA lot of the songs had existed in some form for a while going back to when I first joined Taking Back Sunday and even before that when I was still in Facing New York...I had always intended to make my own record. The process of finishing and recording actually happened surprisingly fast and the songs changed a lot in the month leading up to the studio. I didn't give myself too much time to sit on the completed songs, I just kinda went for it.
