We didn't look, sound or feel like we belonged in the then musical climate. The term hardcore was now being claimed by bands we felt we had little in common with and to be honest, we weren't sure if anybody even cared anymore.
We had done the whole major label thing and that hadn't worked out and it felt like maybe our time had passed.
We made NTP without any expectations at all.
When we stepped onstage for the release show at Gramercy Theatre, I remember thinking this was gonna be the moment that set the course for our future. If it was a lukewarm response to the new material, that it probably meant the beginning of the end for the band.
From the very first note, the crowd showed the new songs so much love that we felt like a new band all over again. It gave us a new wave of energy that we are still riding to this day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm really stoked to get out and celebrate this records anniversary. As much as I’m proud of all of them, this one is the nearest and dearest to me.
Except for this picture, which I think is dog shit. I mean what the fuck is that all about?? Really?? In suits?? in a fucking elevator??
