"Story to Tell" almost didn't make it on the collective's new album, Prose and Consciousness. "I felt like it was an outlier, more raw and rocking but also was worried it would come off as too 'woe is me.' But then realized that was exactly why I should include it. I think it occupies a different space than a lot of the others; it hits that 90s thing with the quiet verse / loud chorus, and I really love that stuff. But Jonny's pedal steel also makes it a little more rootsy sounding than it would have otherwise. I liked how it merges the two styles, and it's super fun and cathartic to sing the loud parts."
Prose and Consciousness will be out on October 11th. Notably, the band made an effort to make an album without any breakup and love songs. And if you avoid those two go-to's, dealing with the shit you have to keep together is what inevitably comes up.
