Was the recording process much different than recording Fool's Fall?

W: Yeah, probably on the other side of the spectrum from Fool's Fall.

P: With our EP everything was tracked separately but for this one we went into a live room and recorded everything at once. So we put the drums and bass down then we'd go back in and rework everything else. …
