Anonymous asked: For all members: if or when you look back on this band and after witnessing all the embracement from fans and wild shows, what would you individually want the band's "ultimate" message that would still live on even when future generations are beginning to listen to your art ?
Well that’s a heavy question. For me at least, I still consider us a punk band. Calling us emo or math-rock or post-hardcore all fits under this umbrella term of “punk.” We made music that we wanted to make and were ireverant to what people’s standards were of ” a full EP” or “traditional punk sound.” I don’t mean that we weren’t heavily influenced by all these amazing bands in this scene. But rather than trying to emulate someone else’s sound, we took in other people’s sounds and opinions and added it to our own. So I guess, I would want people to get from this is trying to make yourself better musically and lyrically is a very punk thing to do. And that sadness is part of being human and part of being alive, so let yourself feel sad sometimes. But instead of letting it consume you, channel its energy to do something productive. I don’t know. I hope that made sense.
This is important.
“The various album covers were composed Monday December 21, 2009. The photographs were taken by David Summers at Rogers Lakewood Park in Valparaiso, Indiana. In each, Vass is seen holding a different item. The first cover (green), Vass held a painting from his 2006 High School Art Show. The second cover (red), he held a piece of cardboard used in the shipping of our Untitled 7″. The third cover (blue), he held a 125 mesh count screen used to print a navy blue La Dispute hoodie (it had a whale on it) from the fall of 2007. Vass then digitally manipulated David’s photos to exaggerate each of their color schemes and to add the necessary text.” — La Dispute
