i'm a little new, i'm sorry, but can you explain what happened with the cabin??

aww the cabin era…

well, it all happened bc after their massive success from fever they did a bunch of touring/interviews/work so they decided to take a break and write some music in a secluded area, ie the cabin in the woods. also, i remember reading in an interview once they said they were kind of drifting apart and fought a lot so they thought this would help.

when they got there, they wrote some music, which you can hear bits of here. unfortunately, none of it is still alive. ryan ross said in an interview not that long ago in ap that he lost the entire album. so um yeah it’s gone, but the beautiful bits of it sound amazing and i’m so sad it’s gone. 

in a documentary about the making of pretty odd (the album that was made right after they scrapped the cabin album) they show them chilling out at the cabin, which is here. it’s kind of a known fact they took a bunch of drugs while there. oh and ryan burnt a guitar that the band still has. after they came back from the cabin they wrote pretty odd in their old rehearsal space, and the cabin album was forgotten.

although we’ll never hear the music from this amazing, very short era, i am still grateful for the scruff photos it has provided us with and the fanfiction it has inspired.
