Peter told me he'd be more happy pumping gas than doing this, so I had to listen to him. But I felt obliterated.

We decided to let the songs determine where the record was going to go. I had written only a couple of songs before, but we decided just to go with our gut and try different approaches to everything.

We decided not to tell anyone that we weren't a band anymore, but that was really difficult. It was just a very intense time.

We were in just too dark of a place and the spirit wasn't there anymore. We just wanted to go back home, but before we could make any sense of it, Nick grabbed the car and went back to London.

I think we just needed to tear everything down first to build it back up again.
