We haven’t played in a few months, and we’re a little nervous. The jitters, butterflies, they call them butterflies.
You may not know this, but we are explorers. What I mean by that is we sort of like to knock on doors. We knock on all kinds of doors, different genres, take a little peak inside, see what’s cooking.
If you picked up Battle Born, you may or not notice a little bit of a country feel… If you didn’t pick it up, you should go get it, I promise you won’t be left out.
When we made this album we had to come up with a title, and the artwork and then you gotta figure out which font is gonna be on the record. We narrowed it down to a few different fonts. We were very set on ‘Battle Born’, and so we actually had it put on t-shirts, to check how it does it looks on t-shirts y’know.
My favourite one was written in cursive, and people kept coming up to me, asking what ‘Battle Porn’ was. We ended up not using that cause we didn’t want people to get the wrong idea…
But back to the country thing… Country, country is sort of at it’s best when there’s a struggle, couple of broken hearts.. A lot of pain, a lot of pain right?
If you listen to the radio now it’s totally gone away from that… But country’s at its best when there’s a fly in the ointment, or a serpent in the garden… Country’s at its best when there’s a little piece of glass hidden in the grass. You know what I’m saying?
Country’s at it’s best when somebody’s done somebody wrong.
Somebody did me wrong! And that’s what inspired this next song…
