But after Herman left the band, Campbell took it upon himself to be a stronger singer. At the same time, he says, the name took on a new meaning for him, an internal yin-yang kind of concept. Fittingly, that push and pull also applies to the band's songwriting. Not every song makes the cut, evidently.

"A lot of the songs that get chopped are the ones that don't cater to the live audience as much as the studio audience," Campbell explains, "the reason being that the songs with more meaning are really great for studio audiences, but live, the energy really shines. You don't really need to hear what's being done as much as you can feel it. So I would tend to get really deep, and all the deep songs that I write are usually tossed to the wayside, and the more novelty and fun songs are put in the forefront.
