About « Sad Loud America », it was your label i guess ? Is the label still alive ? Or it was just a label to help you to release « How Strange, Innocence » ? I actually really like that label name.
Chris: I like that name, too. It was really just something used for that record. The name was actually thought up by our good friend Kurt. We haven’t put anything out on the label since the original version of How Strange, Innocence. So I guess that means it doesn’t exist anymore. But maybe we’ll bring it back someday.
What’s up with the writting process of the new album of explosions?

Chris: we’re still not sure yet.
