“When we thought of the album title, we thought it was a way to say, ‘OK, here’s an album of things I’m upset about and hurt over…but at the end of the day, everything’s fine, everything’s copacetic, because you have to look at what you do have. I think it’s important, especially in this scene, not to magnify depression and wear it like a badge. You should use music to feel better.”
