I've wondered for a long time whether or not I should ever release this album. The story of the year 2013 is not an easy one to tell, and for a while I thought if I couldn't get it out while we were still in 2013, it might as well stay there forever. And yet, these files have stayed on my hard drive, crash after crash. It's historic in the sense that I'll never be able to forget it, but I don't mean that in a good way. I'll never forget the first time I sat back stage and absorbed the flashing lights, just like I'll never forget the day I met that girl in a zodiac shirt screaming at me in a room full of flickering sweaty bitcoins. But it's not like that, it's like how I'll never forget that day in May when all of the voices came to a halt so they could harmonize in one bellowing hymn that knocked me off my feet, and soon enough I could find them no more and had to learn to crawl back up from the trenches and into the lives of people worth meeting. But I spent too long trying to pick myself up and was scooped with the sand into the hands of a queen in her own right. This is that story, but it's not told well. It starts so happily, then goes straight to hell. If you're worried about the future, then please don't disappear. This is but the start, soon part 2 will be here.
