new BRMC interviews!

There's been a flurry of BRMC press already and the album hasn't even been released yet! Here are some new interviews to check out, including a misquoted Peter Hayes on the cons of reading too much. That one from GigWise seems like a smear campaign to make him look stupid. It almost worked, as even a few fans started posting long treatises on the importance of literature. I don't think Peter ever dissed literature, I think he was just saying you can't just live vicariously through books. Anyways, there's lots of interesting info in these articles, including a story about how Robert's lyric book was stolen after his apartment was broken into and how he had to improvise the words to American X.
