Would you have stayed with Warner if you had the choice?
I like to say it like we felt like we got dumped when we had been trying to break up with our girlfriend for years [laughs].

Do you think if they kept you, then you couldn’t be bothered to fight to get off the label and you would’ve just stayed with them?
They’d already picked up the option for our fifth record. So they’d already given us money to stat making the record and then dropped us. So I think we would’ve made this record with them and it would have been a nightmare, just like the last one [2009’s ‘Artwork’]. I mean, we really started to butt heads towards the end. They wanted to get really involved in the creative side and kind of killed a lot of the passion in the last record for me. A lot of the songs that I really enjoyed in the beginning, it fell to pieces the more the suits got involved.
