Sometimes I forget how long I’ve been a fan of da fall bois. Like?? I remember when infinity on high came out?? Jeez, I was in middle school. And oh god, the hiatus? But so much beauty took place during it. And when they came back, I literally fell to the floor crying.
I’ve been feeling super nostalgic lately and I really miss when I would soak in every lyric and write them every where I could, using their songs like a comfort blanket and crying to hallelujah before I could ever truly relate to the lyrics of the album.
I don’t know, man. I just feel really lucky to have stuck around and see it all (well most).
this one was strange. it was transitional. If FUCT was the caterpillar album- Infinity On High was the cocoon one. we had been on tour around the world nonstop but hadn’t really seen any of the magazine covers we were on or had any perspective of seeing our videos on TRL- it was odd how everything was changing but it felt like we were in a time capsule… this record would bring so many ideas from jay z doing the intro to working with baby face on “thnks fr th mmrs” to the flight 101 saga (3 shows in a day in ny, chicago, and la)… but first and foremost it documented this blur that had become our lives. this record more than any of the others has always reminded me of night time- both the anxiety of insomnia and the peace of being awake when everyone else is asleep. i remember before we released it i used like a security blanket listening and trying to fall asleep. i really appreciate everyone who gave this one a chance.
