Vocalist Dan says: “The one time I tried surfing I got stung by a stingray, so I don’t go near the water anymore. My encounters and experiences in cyberspace have been similar to the one I had in the ocean and as a result I am not that much of an internet warrior. I can’t Whatstagram or Faceapp very well, and to be honest it just doesn’t throttle me like it seems to so many others.
Nonetheless, as a band we do have a small presence in the web, and since I am the one who writes all the words in the songs, I should at least post a few thoughts about the album that we are releasing.
This collection of songs is intended for those out there who have a keen sense of their surroundings and the world that they live in. For some, it might seem a bit much as far as its content is concerned, or maybe it says just what you want to hear. If you don’t get it at all, that’s no big deal.
I would only advise caution to those who would write it off as bunch of nonsense, because they are what this is all about.
For me personally, I prefer to listen to it all with a touch of humor as I have so very consciously composed it. To dissect each word and meaning at face value may lead you to perceive this as a rather dark and gloomy album, and in no way has that been my intention.
I could continue, but I would like the album to have a chance to speak for itself, and if just a few people actually find some enjoyment in what they are listening to, then I have achieved what I wanted to.
Finally, I want to throw out a HUGE thank you to the two people who helped to make this a reality.
Pedro and Andi, you have both been unbelievably patient and professional during this whole process. It has been a delight for me personally to be able to have made this very invigorating and enlightening experience happen together. Thank you!”
