With Count Your Lucky Stars, Iʼve been a friend of Keith’s for a long time, and my friend Chris French pretty much made me call him and ask him to put the record out. I didnʼt want to ask because he was my friend, and it just seems weird asking your friends for favors, almost like youʼre using them or something. But when I called him I was like “Hey, we’ve got a new record” and he said “Send it to me man, maybe we’ll put it out”. He didnʼt get back to me for about two weeks so I didnʼt think it was going to happen. And, when he finally called me back the phone cut out before he could say anything. We played phone tag for a while, but at that point I was pretty sure he didnʼt want to put out the record. We finally got a hold of each other he said, “We want to release the album, I just wanted to keep you in suspense.” So heʼs an asshole for that. But, Iʼm really glad we got released on that label. There are so many bands on it that Iʼve been listening to for years, and a lot of my really close friends are on that label so Iʼm pretty honored.
