about

"We all go a little mad sometimes." - Norman Bates.

This is a record about breakin' up. It's also about Hamlet, and Shirley Jackson, and Baltimore County, and a fictional war between the mid-Atlantic and San Francisco, and ghosts, and more ghosts, and the Band, and Van Morrison, and the Loch Raven Reservoir, and Nabokov.

I wrote the songs in order. I wrote "The Revenant" in 2005 and I finished "The Burgundy Cord" in 2008. We spent forever recording it - Jeff and Derek and Sonya and Pete and I. Probably too long. But those were good years, staying up late, drinking, talking about a record we were all making together, wondering how long I was going to fuck with it before I just let it be. Let be. Get it?

Pete Watts used to refer "The Basilisk" as "Kiehne's Green Day song," which I still think is pretty excellent.
