Q: Do you write your songs together as a group?
A: We do it every which way. Either Will or I will have an idea or a basic structure, we'll work it out, then share it with the rest of the band, or one of us will show up with a pretty complete product that will need just a few tweaks. There's almost always something added to songs that the scratch idea/track didn't start with. Pretty much everything goes to a vote till we're all happy with the song. -Sean
