The lyrics of this record seem more personal, there's less importance placed on settings and characters in the songs. Did you set out to write that way?

I was faced with a dilemma when it came to this record because I had nothing left to say about New Jersey, or Maria, or any of those things. I told those stories already and those characters and places have been defined as they were when it was important to tell. So I was left with what do I write about? And after a while I just started expressing myself on paper, just thoughts and whatever I was feeling and that became the lyrics to Handwritten. I knew that there was nothing left but my feelings at that moment to talk about, photographs, pictures of a time. That's what records are ― snapshots of the band's life at a specific time.

This is a really good interview. It was nice to see something positive for a change! Razz

I wanted to be in a band, not a band with a guy who writes songs and everyone kinda just plays over those songs. I knew those other four guys had something great in them and some really cool ideas.

That's really cool that he mentioned the four guys, Ian included. It would be interesting to find out exactly what each of them brought to the table as far as songwriting goes.

I was kinda surprised when he said that other band members would be timid towards him...thought they were all bros.

Most of the time I think that no matter how close the members of a band seem, they really don't hang out that much outside the band. Just because you spend so much damn time together.
