And I'd like to think we've established this little niche in pop culture, so that's awesome." On Writing Cobra's New Album: "We have a clear idea what the sequence of the album is like, you know? We wrote nine songs before we went on tour, and we liked 'em, but we kept saying, 'These don't have the variety that the songs on Viva la Cobra did.'
