The Columbian - Phil Collen Interview Quotes

The New Album

"The great thing about this is we weren’t after a sound,” Collen said in an early July phone interview. “So there’s a freedom in that that just allows you to be a true artist. It’s the first time we’ve ever done that, in the 30-odd years I’ve been in the band. Probably when the band first got together and was doing demos, that was a (true) representation."

"I think were just trying to come up with a song. We should do something,” Collen said. “We were just playing each other ideas. Instead of putting them into a bracket or a box, we just did the songs that sounded most exciting to us straight off of the bat and all of a sudden everything kind of had a fresh kind of vigor about it."
