"Being on a bigger label and having to chase [modern] rock radio just wasn't that appealing," says Bare. "A lot of the stuff I listen to is more on the end of Built to Spill or Pavement or The Pixies, so opening up for Aerosmith and Fuel wasn't really where I wanted to be. I'm married with a baby now, too. So that's just a whole new version of chaos - having a wife and child who need you there as opposed to being single and running around playing rock and roll."
Let's be clear about this: at one point a newborn baby is cooked into a stew and then fed to its mother, and this is arguably not the most horrifying moment in the story. The only predictable element in Haunted is that no matter how bad things seem to get, there's always something worse to come.
