Harris tells Goldmine: "We've always done what we wanted to do right from the first album, so there's no difference there. It's just that we do have difficulty writing short songs these days. I don't know why that is. It's just the way it evolved."
He continues: "There's no real reason besides the fact that we do have all kinds of influences. Some of them being prog kind of stuff. But we're not trying specifically to be like anything other than just writing what the songs we feel are right at the time."
Harris reports part of the excitement of the writing process is that they don't know what the end result will be, and adds: "We just go in and do it and what comes out, comes out. It's only afterward, when we do interviews, when we try to analyze it. We don't analyze what we do. We just do it." Read more here.
