"I didn't want to write that record that's like, 'I'm on the road,'" Walston says. "Free drinks, boo-hoo. Nobody can relate to it. An entire record, 'I'm on the bus/ I'm on the move/ I'm coming home.' I don't care about it. On this record, I think we were writing for the first time without saying, 'Oh, we're going to play a show tomorrow night, this needs to be so immediate and everything's got to be so hard and crazy because we'll be playing for 30 people who don't know who we are.' For this record, we'll be playing for 100 or 200 people who do know who we are. I was just kind of like, 'Ehh, I'll write whatever I want.' Whereas the only agenda before was we don't want to flop onstage."
