Their music is just one part of a major story the band has been working on.
“When we did the emptiness that was the first in what became the Annabel Trilogy,” he said. “We also released Annabel the book, which expands on the characters and what not. Madeline was the fist character introduced. She didn’t exist on the record first. The song wasn’t finished yet to make it on Confessions. We finished the song a couple of years later.”
He said the band’s goal has been has bee more than just music.
“That has been our goal since the early days of the band.” he said. “A big part of what we wanted to do in the band is that we wanted to create an artistic universe and wanted to use outside of things. We go to do that. We wanted to expand to novels and movies.”
