REVOLVER What’s “2012″ about?
TYLER “TELLE” SMITH
I watched the movie Law Abiding Citizen and knew that the vibe of that song would be perfect for the lyrics. Basically it’s my point of view from the main character’s perspective. It’s pretty violent and intense so I hope it translated right!

What does the title reference?
It’s actually a inside joke with the ban. We used to call our old sound guy “2012″ because he represented the end of the world to us. But truly I don’t believe the world will end in 2012. I think whenever the world does end, it’ll be gnarly and more insane than anyone could have predicted.

Which part of it did you come up with first?
The music almost always comes first for us. The inspiration behind the musical side of things, since I just told you about the lyrical side, came from us wanting to write a heavy song with some catchy synth that would be fun to play live. The result has become our most popular song to date!

Was the original version an easy song to record?
It was probably the easiest of the songs on the record but one where we all got to focus on the live energy of the song being translated into the recording. I think because of that it stands out on our CD.

What do you think of the remix? Are you ready to hear the Word Alive in clubs?
I would love to hear this in a club, I think that would be rad. We’re currently on a European tour, and after the show the other night, the venue turned into a club but it was playing heavy music and people were dancing. I would love to see that happen in the States. I think this is my favorite remix of the re-release as well.

      agreed. fabjance is obviously a spastic. the movie shows that justice isn’t always achievable with the current law’s and system we have in place today. drastic actions are sometimes needed to be taken.
