As far as changing the music industry…musicians being able to make [their own] albums. Here’s the thing: with this album, we didn’t have to clear with anybody—this was our album, we made it from scratch. The label had no interference with what we did and we did everything ourselves as far as artwork, concepts, videos, me doing the album packaging, we’re mixing the album, recording. I think it’ll change the music industry in a way so that it’s best to do things on your own because at the end of the day when people try to come at your product. I can make more from this project because I made it myself and it’s not a matter of the record label being like Well if something’s not as successful as we want it to be… we don’t wanna put it out again, so we’re not gonna give you money to get mixing, to do artwork, to have a recording budget. But when you control your own destiny, nobody can stop you because you do all the stuff yourself, so you’re a self-contained business that can’t be stopped. I think it’s moving more towards the DIY as far as that aesthetic, working in the industry. – Matt Martians
