Q: Why a double album?
A: To inflict twice as much pain.
Q: Is Disc one, Aural, a parody of art/progressive rock, or a homage?
Q: Why progressive rock?
A: Truthfully, we loved this stuff in high school and college. Genesis, Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Rush, Marillion, we listened to it all. In fact, we still love some of it, as "uncool" as that may be. But more importantly, critics hate it, and that's good enough for us.
Q: Is there a feel-good song on this album?
Q: What's it called?
A: "Pain, Agony, Death, Suffering."
Q: Do you have any Spanish-language songs on this album?
A: Yes, "El Raccoon"
Q: How was it written?
A: By translating the original English lyrics of "The Raccoon" into Spanish via Babel Fish.
Q: Is it an accurate translation?
A: We certainly hope not.
Q: What's the first line of "The Raccoon?"
A: "My pantaloons are full of weasels."
Q: What inspired "Proud to be the Great Satan?"
A: We are, in our own twisted way, patriots. We're releasing "Proud to be the Great Satan" to commemorate the liberation of Iraqi and celebrate the American Way. We also hope to piss off France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, and anyone else in the Axis of Weasels.
Q: Are any songs on the album inspired by great literature?
A: Yes, "The Physician's Tale" is inspired by the story of the same name in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales.
Q: What made this story a candidate for a musical treatment?
A: The horrific violence.
Q: Is the song "Please Don't Vomit on the Midgets" a homage to the band Phish?
A: Yes. While they aren't generally considered to be a "progressive rock" band, critics hate them too.
Q: Is it true that "One Child Cries" was inspired by several recent Academy Award-winning songs?
Q: Do you think it could win an Academy Award?
A: No. Despite our best efforts, it still doesn't suck enough.
Q: Does the song "Head Full of Paint" encourage people to abuse paint?
A: Only if they're stupid enough to think so, in which case they should take themselves out of the gene pool as soon as possible anyway.
Q: Previous Hidden Agenda albums have included songs glorifying drug abuse, serial killers and Satanism. Do those themes also appear on your latest album.
A: Check, check, and check! Oh yeah, we're cooking with gas!
Q: Which of the songs on this album are radio ready?
A: Oddly enough, ALL of them except for "F*ckit" are radio ready, mainly because we used up our entire profanity budget on that song.
Q: Where can your songs be downloaded from?
Q: Where can people buy your albums and t-shirts?
