I wanted to talk about angst. Two specific scenes inspired this record. One was in Home Alone 2 when Kevin is walking around New York at night for the first time and a homeless man walks past him cursing furiously under his breathe to himself. That exists here and it's scary, and sad at the same time. The other was the hateful-to-every-race rant Edward Norton gives himself in the bathroom mirror in 25th Hour. That's where I went lyrically. As far as the feeling, what it took to get to this place, that's my father and some of the ills he's described to me. Life beats you down. The shit kicks you in the shins and sometimes you wake up with a wife taking you to court, your kids thinking you're a piece of shit, your landlord banging on your door, and shitty rap music playing out of someones car outside your window. This record is about getting to a point you dread your existence and how that might feel. It's Old Man Angst and for some reason it needed to come out of me.
New full-length album of all original music coming soon.
