No deliberate reason, it's just the way things have worked out, but we're glad it didn't happen until now as we couldn't have made the kind of album that we did until recently. All the singles we've done over the past few years have been great training for us to take on the challenge of making the kind of full-length we wanted to.
Also, Michael who runs Night School Records asked if we'd like to release an album with him, something that no other label we worked with before had offered to do. We lucked out too as we couldn't have asked for a better label to work with.
I was surprised to hear that the debut album was all music written within the past year or so. Why did you opt to not put any of your other music on it?
We also wanted to make the album a reflection of where the band is right now and for it to work best as a complete piece of work rather than some kind of retrospective of previously heard odds and ends that have no relation to each other. Because the music was all written and recorded within a year it feels to us more unified and direct.
Were you all friends before starting Divorce, or did any of you end up joining through a wanted ad or something strange?
Why is VSO only referred to by that acronym? What does it stand for, and what do you call him?
You recently played a show with Doomsday Student, how was that?
Fantastic! We're all big fans of their previous band Arab On Radar so it was a pretty big deal for us that we got to share a bill with them. Their set was absolutely ferocious, plus they were true gentlemen. Excellent t-shirt designs too.
What were your favorite albums of 2012 (if you have a chart/top 10 list/ each have only a few favorites, whichever)?
What's the practice space like right now, and do you record in your own studio or have to pay to record?
What are your plans for 2013, and if it is another album, are you planning on having a stateside label as well?
What is one album I should hear that would be unknown outside of Europe?
That AIDS of Space music video was very nice, do you plan on having Sofia do any future work with you?
Who made the album art?
