Comments by John Darnielle About this Album[]

  • "The one that we were recording before we came home was called Getting Into Knives, although at the time it was called As Many Candles As Possible and then it turned out that Jane Siberry had an album called All the Candles in the World. And I was like, okay, well I can’t call it that, then. I kept the song title, but. Then I named it after "Getting Into Knives", which to me is a much better album title anyway, so it was a fortuitous accident there." -- 2021-03-31 - Get Lit with All of It - Virtual
