I don’t know if you remember, but on the original demos we released, there was a song called “It’s Everybody’s Fault But Mine” and one called “A Slow Descent.” Those two were more about the experience of being in Taking Back Sunday, and I made a conscious decision to leave those off the record – not because of what I was saying in it or being too honest, but because people were overly obsessed with that.

After The War On Drugsfinally commented on Mark Kozelek's one sided feud with the band, Mark has already responded in typical douche fashion. He has released audio of him "covering" Adam Granduciel's remarks while playing a blues riff and laughing like a child after every comment.

I mean, to be fair to that idiot, what he said in that song… I didn’t really have a problem with any of it until I heard the song. First of all, he never met us, and yet said all these things. He’s such a douche. I asked somebody if I could get his e-mail, because I wasn’t trying to start this stupid Twitter thing, I was just bummed.
