On how the band write songs:
Thom comes in with lots of lyrics, a melody and chords, and usually he strums it on acoustic guitar. we then take it from there and beat it up and arrange it. sometimes they need a lot of arrangement. sometimes they need absolutely nothing. sometimes thom will present a song and it's so obvious how it should be done. those are actually the hardest to do - the ones where we have free scope and it can go in any direction are the easiest ones to do.
