A: "The biggest difference in the first endeavor and this one is I finally have three guys that are in the band. For the first record, I brought in all kinds of different guys to lay down different parts. We had about eight different people playing on the first record. This is more reflective of the four of us. I gave a little more creative control to the other guys in the band when we were coming up with parts for the songs."
Q: You recorded with Dwayne Lundy at Shangri-la Studio in Lexington, Ky. How was that experience?
A: "It added a whole new breath of fresh air to get out of Dayton and get away from our rehearsal space, which is where we recorded the last album. I'm a pretty big stickler — I'm my own worst critic — but I was impressed with not only the performances we were able to capture but how Dwayne added his own bells and whistles. It was nice to get a fresh pair of ears for these songs. Dwayne is like a mad scientist in a way, and added his own ideas and twists to these songs. We're looking forward to working with him again."
