So this Friday our 6th studio album comes out and it feels like we (the band) have been living with it for quite some time.
‘Human Design’ is an in depth look into three years of life, loss, love and change. Ultimately it’s become a kind of diary or journal for a lot I had to live through and learn from.
Thinking about this record I’m reminded what a surreal and strange job we have as songwriters. We open the door and invite people into our lives where we expose our most vulnerable sides for all to see (well, hear I guess).
There was never any desire or design to write a full record in the beginning. We just had some real life shit to talk about and we took it one song at a time. Each song became a snapshot to where I was at as I crawled my way out of the mud and back on the field.
It’s not all busted heart dealings though. There’s a number of songs that helped me get back on my feet and shake the devil off my back. There’s also the part of this journey that lead to the most beautiful, world changing moments of my life.
I’m truly grateful to be on the other side of this record. It’s been quite a ride I can tell you.
