“I was in a superbly dark fucking spot when we did that record. What I remember about doing it was pretty ugly. But I was surrounded by beautiful things. I was in New Orleans. I was at Trent Reznor‘s studio—that place was beautiful and awesome. And Terry Date was there.

And Terry Date would come fly down and work with me. And it was the first record I did away from the band. I was injured man. I was addicted to drugs. And sometimes when you’re in those dark places, they make for some goddamn good music, or interesting expressions of music, and art in general. I think I felt pretty confident that the songs were devastating.”
