Wolves At The Gate's Stephen Cobucci joins Matt Carter to break down a few demos from their new album "Types & Shadows." They discuss the interesting theory that the artists you looked up to probably don't like the music you make, and you probably won't like your progeny's music either. That also gets them into motives behind music, making art for the love of the music, versus the desire to be in a band, and what that does to the art itself.

What's it like having no control over where you're traded, and how do the best quarter backs in the league treat their offensive team?
