feelings from my brain.
going to keep this short because we actually have a few things coming up and i don’t want to talk too much before just getting some other stuff out there. (could i be any more vague? no…)
all i want to say is that… it’s been nice having alone time. it’s been nice getting to know who i am outside of the band. in the last year i’ve become a big time loner, for better or for worse. saw a crap ton of movies and went to some amazing shows. watched a lot of tv, from my couch, all alone. wrote a lot of lyrics that hopefully you will soon be singing. i hope that i’ve grown up a lot this year. though, growing up has nothing to do with knowing it all… and i certainly feel like there is much more to learn about living with myself.
i’m not exactly sure what next year is going to be like but i hope that you all know that most days the most genuine thing we see or experience will be you. the conversations we might have or the smiles we exchange at a show, tears, letters you’ve written… thank you in advance for whatever is going to happen. i can’t stress this enough: we couldn’t care less if it’s a million hundred bajillion albums sold or if it’s none and we play first on every bill for the rest of forever. you will still be the thing that is real about all of it. the joy and the drive behind it… besides the fact that we just love music… is you. in fact, it feels like the past 2 years of working to get here has all been a journey mixed with some growing pains just to get to you.
2013 here we come!
