I’ve been thinking a lot about FEAR recently. I never used to. There has always been so much HOPE on the horizon, that I never had time to be scared of anything. As you all know, we’ve been writing a new album for a pretty indefinite period of time. Thank you for your patience, I promise you it will be worth it. Some of these songs are really, really amazing. Its very different not having a deadline, or a tour on the horizon, that pressures you to into finishing an album by a certain date. There is something incredible and absolutely terrifying about this. We’re free to spend all the time we need to give you guys the best album that we can, but thats pretty scary because it means we can’t fuck it up, haha. I never used to be a patient person. I wanted great, and I wanted it immediately. Its crazy being 25 now, considering we started this band at 17….there’s still so much to see, do, create, and conquer. Sometimes I get scared that I won’t accomplish everything i want. That my aspirations are insane and I’m setting myself up to be let down…..
But the one thing I’ve learned is that fear is meant to be conquered and you have to storm that fucking castle anyway. You can’t have HOPE without a little bit of FEAR.
These are some things I’m scared of:
-Mushrooms (the food kind or the poisonous kind, none for me please!)
-Cats (YOU CAN’T TRUST THEM)
-Falling in love
-Right Wing Conservatives
-Not being the biggest band we can be.
What are you scared of?
