Vivian, buzzsaws?

It's hard to do, and there's only a handful of bands that have done that." For the new album, which the Lovemakers decided to release themselves via Fontana distribution, Light explains, "We changed our attitude a lot, too. I feel like we always have to come back around and realized, Right. It's about the music. It sounds stupid, but I think we really let go of the business side affecting us. It's not that we're not doing it — we're still doing it all. But it doesn't piss me off anymore: it's just a process — it's not personal anymore. Music is personal, and business isn't."
