I Want To Show You How It Ends

Q. Why was the new album’s title changed from Crystal Baller to Out of the Vein? — Ryan Griffin, Metairie, La. 

A. ”Because the rest of the band wouldn’t let me name it Crystal Baller. They never let me do anything. Crystal Baller [was] sort of a play on words. Like a baller…a shot caller.

The band didn’t like it. But I think Out of the Vein is good.”
