Probably the first song I wrote was around sixteen. A lot of the songs on this record, the band's been together five or six years now, so a lot of the songs that we ended up recording are what we gave Maverick on our demo back in 2000 and we rerecorded. The sounds and music for this album are songs I wrote when I was like eighteen and we're still playing them. I got all this new stuff that I've got to keep stocked away for another day.
Everything on the record, I'm proud of it. I think back and I go wow, I was eighteen when I wrote that.
Maverick is one of the smaller labels, ya know, they have the major label power through Warner, but they're still like a boutique label, there's only like thirty artists on there, so yeah that was what we were excited by. There are a lot of bands having problems with labels.
