Q: What inspired you all to write and record "Urban Planning?"
A: Hey Shane, Urban Planning is one of the first songs we worked on as a group - The song is pretty different from how I originally wrote it, before it was more up and down, almost like a mellow Weezer tune. Now it's got some swing and some balls. Anyway it's about that moment when someone asks you a question that you don't have the answer for, or more accurately, when you gotta give them the answer you know they don't want to hear. Or perhaps even more accurately, you gotta give the answer you don't want to have to give. Kind of an abstract breakup song. It's about breaking up, not being broken up with. Thanks for writing!
