The one thing about being a band that sings about the ills of society is that you kind of have a bottomless well of inspiration, because society is constantly letting you down and therefore constantly giving you fuel for another record. As soon as we live in a utopia, I’ll hang my hat and be happy to do so! I’m trying to put myself out of business, and I would love to! I would love to wake up one day and think, “Hey, I have nothing to sing about, the world seems like a really lovely place today!”, but so far, that hasn’t happened yet.
