What I want you to do, Matt, what I want you to do is I want you to run the video that everyone is talking about where I so-called screamed at somebody.

No, weíre trying to change it up and go with more of a plan as a unit, as opposed to a plan as individuals. Weíre trying to sit down and take the pre-production and the writing more into consideration instead of the studio to come and go ďShit, we have to write 15 songsĒ.

Itís like the stars align and we become completely in synch with each other.

Itís not just to be trippy. Itís to actually help tell the story and convey an emotion.
