Pray For Tucson is comprised of two songs from Resolutions and two covers of songs by Strike Anywhere and the Trouble. Why did you choose to re-record these songs and what did you do to change it up?
I recorded Resolutions in one shot, full-band and once I started playing live, people were like, “Hey, we love the record, but are you going to do a B-sides kind of thing where you do the alternate versions of how you play them live?” When I tour, I just tour by myself [so it sounds completely different]. I figured it would be cool to do different versions and then it dawned on me that the way that I structured Resolutions’ release was [with a one record contract].
