How’s your latest album coming? Can we expect a release date this year?
"Well, we’re going through contracts now unfortunately. We need to work the legal stuff out first but the record is pretty much done on our end. We just need to pop into the studio real quick. We’re usually really fast like that but it’s coming along great. We’re stoked. We have tons of material. We’re going to have extra songs for all kinds of 7” and EPs; all that kind of good stuff."
Did you end up deciding on a label, or is that part of the legalities of it?
"Yeah, just the legalities with the labels. Just a couple that we’re looking at right now so we’re hoping to get that all worked out pretty soon before we actually leave and make an announcement with the way we’re going and what we’re going with this time. At that point it will be in the process. We have a single coming out, probably in about a couple of weeks or something like that too, so just kind of keep people satisfied a little bit. We know we’ve been taking our time with this sample. We’re all a bunch of dysfunctional retards. We apologize."
