One Question Interviews: Withdrawal

Adam Dyson (Withdrawal)

SPB: How do you choose your album art?

Dyson: I've always felt that the artwork and presentation of a record is just as crucial as the music contained on it. It's important because it immediately sets a mood, and the recorded music itself fulfils the pre-conceived feelings you'd get looking at the cover. We're lucky that we have a support group of likeminded artists who are interested in expression through imagery with the same passion that we have for music. Often, I'll bounce ideas off them based on the feel the record gives off, or a central theme of the songs. Or sometimes not. "Faith, Flesh & Blood" was about offering everything about yourself to someone, but with the artwork that we worked with on Give Up (ingivingup.blogspot.ca) we just went for straight up religious smut. He'll be working with us on our new LP. Price isn't an issue; we've lost money making cardstock, silver embossed covers, glow in the dark and invisible ink covers. Anything to be different and interesting. Above all, support look for artwork that is original and evocative.
