The pieces won’t come together, seriously, until like three weeks before it comes out. We’ll probably record everything in, like, a week. So we’re just gonna get it all together, map it out, have it done to a T, and then go and record. Then fresh from the studio, fresh to mastering …so it eliminates a lot of time and error that was surrounding my debut.
The album could continue into a comic book and a horror themed radio program.
