an interview bit (from 2011) … sums it up pretty well, or ?!

“Q: Many bands write up tour blogs when they’re on the road for while and keep in touch with followers and fans via social networks online; it really helps keep followers and fans updated in a pseudo-personal way. Seeing you have quite the cult following, how have you adapted to the evolution of social networking helped you keep in touch with the world at large?

A: I like a bit of mystery. I’ve never been interested in meeting my heroes or knowing what they eat for breakfast. It’s very easy these days to have everything delivered to your lap from your laptop.
We do post information and “sell” ourselves over the internet, we have our web site. We have a forum we occasionally take part in. But if we were to spend our time keeping people aware of the mundane ins and outs of our lives, we’d never have the time to live those lives… or make music. 
I would rather see the world than keep in touch with it.”
