A couple of media things appeared yesterday: first was an interview for GrooveVolt with Jeremy and Michael before their New York City gig last week. It was mostly about the writing of Get To Heaven, which of course is still a new release in the US. Here’s a nice quote about Jonathan’s lyric writing!
“It’s Jon who writes the lyrics, but we usually make the titles, having written lyrics since he was 10, so he’s very well versed. He’s very conscious of cliche, and wanting to avoid it. He’s not particularly literary or well read, and doesn’t like fiction, but he is very useful. Jon is just quite analytical in general, but we don’t think he has formally thought about or studied it.”

Secondly we have a video interview and acoustic performance of Distant Past, recorded on a LA rooftop right at the start of the US tour for Balcony TV:
