You guys took a somewhat unconventional route to recording this album. What was the process of putting Conveyor together like?
Vocalist Dan Kloza: When it came to planning for the recording, we really wanted to have a flexible timetable, as well as the freedom to experiment with different instrumental parts and sounds. It was definitely the most relaxed recording experience we've been a part of; we got to experiment with different guitars, amplifiers and even additional songwriting as well. Plus, we got to watch The Matrix about one hundred times and reacquaint ourselves with the Harry Potter films.
How has your relocation from Toms River, NJ to Philadelphia, PA affected the band?
Being from a suburb like Toms River, there really was no steady music community. Venues are harder to come by and there were real ups and downs to the amount of local bands, as well as people willing to go out to shows. Throughout the last few years, we have played in Philadelphia a bunch and have made a lot of friends here, so it was a pretty easy move for us to make. Since moving, we have been lucky enough to be a part of some awesome shows and an amazing music community. There is such an abundance of great people and great bands here that it kind of spoils us, in a way. But I guess that is the advantage of living in a city that is a standard spot to hit for almost every band touring the country. (Jump Start)
