“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And you’ll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods. And the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.”

    I don't even remember ever listening to these guys haha but i did in 2009.. once lol. Anyways, checked out their new self-titled album and it's pretty cool. It's definitely interesting and unique.

    Some of the songs are repetitive, but it's definitely growing on me. I met them yesterday and bought their new CD. They were great to talk to, the new album is great to listen to.
