While these songs had been kicked around for a long time, we were searching for a cohesive theme to gel them together. When we decided on a space opera-esque direction, “Sleeping with the Devil” bared the most creative and interesting fruits.
During the making of the album, we thought it'd be fun to include an interlude or two. While not many groups do this any more, they did have a bit of a resurgence in hip-hop albums as out takes and, in some cases, bits of theater. They are really fun as they are short and ,since most people will delete them off their MP3 players, there's a bit of freedom to do some weird stuff.
These are old, new songs. Spent a few years looking for perfect when all we needed was “right”. Think we’ve arrived. The story begins with Confessions. It’s a space drama about a girl who escapes heartbreak into the cold of Earth's orbit where she collects floating debris. However, her distant memories of Earth beckon her to re-enter the atmosphere to confront her losses.
