Well that was fast. I'm guessing this will be a tad bit more depressing than the last DCFC album.

This is kinda cool. I would have never expected him to do something like this, but I'm really excited. Wonder if its going to be like PS or more acoustic stuff. Excited.

Excited. I thoroughly enjoyed his half of Home: Volume V. Ben can do no wrong.
