"But it doesn't matter now. Just come and love me how, like the way you used to do"

Josh Homme: "The most important aspect of making this record was redefining our sound, asking and answering the question, 'What do we sound like now?'. If you can't make a great first record, you should just stop - but if you can make a great record but you keep making records and your sound doesn't evolve, you become a parody of that original sound."

"I can't. She said, I'd save you but I can't love"

Chelsea Wolfe: "I think all the different stuff I've listened to over the years eventually melded into my own weird thing...
One of the main reasons I've kept this project under my own name, even though it's full band most of the time, is that I didn't want to have to compromise on the sound. I wanted to always be able to follow my instincts in writing and allow the music to morph into what it needed to be.
