"We had an amazing moment when we were finalizing the record. We had signed the contract, and he compared our music to Whitney Houston. We were tripping out; it was actually a heavy deal. He was talking about the emotional pull— the feeling, not the literal sound— the true fucking shit that you strike on. […] I took it as a massive compliment because the dude is on this primal level right there with us. He was able to go beyond these stigmas and attachments and he knew we wouldn’t be threatened by something like that— that we would know what he was talking about when he said that right after her passing."
