I want to thank all of The Greatest Fear's Amercian friends for being so patient while we have been playing international shows. I feel that my experiences out of the country have made me a more well rounded individual... I have been forever changed. It is my desire to bring you the best album I can & I fnally feel that I can truly deliver a strong sophmore effort. Little changes in life affect people and "life" has certainly been having it's way with me. I've learned to welcome it and drink it wildly from the cup. Creation is an amazing process that needs life or it will starve - I spent a while coveting the initial success that we had and trying to force out another great album and had writer's block. I found that once I sat back and embraced the personal issues that have sprung up in my life I can write with ease. Turmoil truly can breed inspiration. I scratched a lot of the original material that I had been working on for the next album as I am musically taking this project in the way it was always intended to go. Many try to pigeon-hole this band as metal or gothic metal etc. I found myself pinned down trying to please - instead I will just do what I do- and write songs The Greatest Fear way.
Thank you for waiting- It won't be much longer for The Locust Queen's successor...
P.S. Thank you Brazil The Greatest Fear fans - you are truly inspirational! Your wonderful emails and cards are truly touching.
