“Lately, Lazzara has been thinking about doing a solo album. If anything, that’s where the “emo” and “pop-punk” tags concern him the most. He doesn’t listen to much music that would be considered emo or pop-punk anymore, he says. Nowadays, Lazzara likes the rootsy alternative country of fellow North Carolinian Ryan Adams. And he recently checked out the Of Montreal show at the Neighborhood Theatre. “I’m worried that whenever I get my shit together and actually make my album, it’ll get dismissed,” he says. “I’m afraid people will say, ‘Oh, it’s just that emo guy.’ That’s not exactly who I am, and I don’t want to have to meet with that kind of immediate dismissal or opposition.”
The band’s self-titled release came out in 2011 via Warner Bros. Records.
