See the Music: Anberlin, "Little Tyrants"

Anberlin sat down for another See the Music segment with ARTISTdirect.com, this time talking about the song "Little Tyrants" from their new albumVital. The song was written for their previous record and was a demo, and while the band liked it, it didn't fit the vibe or the timing of that album, so it ended up sitting for a minute. Obviously, it eventually wound up on the new album. Better late than never, right?
It's the band's version of Mötley Crüe's "Kickstart My Heart." It just revs the rock 'n' roll engines.
Singer Stephen Christian spoke about how being in Los Angeles for this interview reminded him about the lack of introspection and self-absorption that pervades the city's actors and actresses, and how the song is lyrically about that type of psychology. It's not about L.A. per se, but about that pervasive psychology. Very interesting and thought provoking, right?
