“It’s different every time. I mean, there’s this one track that we’ve been working on, [and] this has never happened before, I woke up with a melody and it actually came from a dream, you know," Jason explained.
“I went downstairs and I grabbed the guitar and I ironed out the melody to figure out how…it was.
“And I actually had a lyric from the dream too, so…you just never know. Like a lot of ideas [come to you] in like, three or four in the morning, so…I was trying to be present enough to capture a moment there,” he added.
ON LADY GAGA. PEP asked the group what they thought of the attempted censorship on Lady Gaga’s concert?
This time, it was Bryce who answered, “It just depends on the artist, I guess. I mean, as far as Lady Gaga goes, she reaches out to a broad…mass audience, people like her.
“And obviously, on the radio, she can’t use swear words, at least the recorded form. And, it just depends on the artist.
“For us, I don’t think we’ll put out content that’s gonna be offensive to many people, so…it’s really what works for [her]…”
CHRISTIAN BAND? Lifehouse was previously thought of as a Christian band, especially because of the single, “Everything,” as the lyrics were said to refer to God.
But Jason clarified, “The Christian thing, we…our goal is to make a good album, you know. We never wanted to put it in a box.
“So, it’s awesome that our music is universal and… people are singing about their boyfriend, girlfriend, God.
“We just think that it’s great for people to interpret our music however they want it."
THEIR MUSIC. What keeps rock music fresh?
Bryce answered, “[The] music industry is constantly changing. There’s like, much new bands collaborating with RNB artists and hiphop artists, country artists. Everything’s kind of, mashing together.
“As far as rock is concerned, there will always be a demand for rock music like guitars, drums, organic music…like we do.
