The dreaded budget: "I'm trying to release EPs as quickly as possible, but it all comes down to money. My initial plan was to put it all out at once, but monetarily it's just not feasible to pay for the studio time to finish 16 songs. And it's been a while since I put anything out and I've been sitting on these songs so I wanted to get them out there so I can write more. It's hard to get new things out when you've got so many old songs to finish up."
