I'm not concerned with that. We want to keep working with Butch, but we'll figure out all of the label stuff later. It will work itself out.

You're quite active on your Twitter feed. I know it has to help you connect with fans, but do you also find it useful as a way to maintain an online presence and keep tabs on how critics portray you and your band?

Well, that's kind of the benefit of all social media in that aspect. There are so many people out there that are part of the "old-school media" world working for magazines and whatnot. And the people think they are gatekeepers or something. They have these fucking brass rings they want you to kiss. "Don't bite the hands that feed you," and they think they control the keys to your career. With the social media, you don't have to rely on anybody in order to talk directly to your fans. I think it's kind of leveled the playing field, and it's super beneficial to bands.
