"With a bigger mega-phone, that many more people will listen. I thought that was what this was all aboutâ¦ coming together collectively to create something more than just a band or a label. A family that wants to take over the world. Or at least build a safe home for artists to work inside. Integrity and art; Ideas are our weapons. Its not about the politic its just about how one lives. Itâs not about the books one reads and the sacrifices we make, itâs about who we are inside and what we actually do with our lives. There is no political agenda to follow or platform to stand on, but only the platforms inside our hearts. We can make our own rules this time. Punk rock is our day-to-day struggle. A struggle that has never sounded so fucking sweet."
