"i think as a band, we’ve kind of shown a lot of sides of ourselves; we’re not just kind of narrowing it down to just one style, or one voice, or one opinion, you know. i think you can hear within any album a number of contradictions, both musically and lyrically. we’re just kind of exploring into the fringe a little bit — the fringe of your imagination, the fringe of your abilities. some songs, for me, are really kind of touching on the unknown — in my own self, if you’d like. and sometimes, you can stumble across something a bit… dark. but i think that’s just humanity, you know? i don’t think that’s anything particular with us. i think that if any person explores all the regions of their imagination, they’re going to stumble across some dark caves somewhere."
