Kerns was interviewed by Jeff Gaudiosi for Misplaced Straws back in early January 2023. Gaudiosi mentioned that Heroes and Monsters‘ debut album was a concise 10-song, 40-minute record to which Kerns replied:

“I think it’s interesting that you say that because I really do feel like it’s quite diverse in its own way. I feel like if we had sort of carved it down to be 10 songs that kind of sound in a similar vein, where you basically have a record of 10 songs that are just 10 different versions of the same kind of song. I don’t think that’s quite as interesting as having it sort of bob and weave in and out of a couple of different areas. But I think that that’s part of the fun of sort of arranging a record. The idea of a shorter record has become sort of an ongoing conversation even with the last Slash record we did was 10 songs. We started to kind of think about the records that we came up on.

Back in the vinyl days was the idea, some of the Van Halen records had eight songs, 10 songs. How can you have filler on a record that’s just that brief? I just felt like less was more. I think that we kind of have leaned into that. We’d written a bunch of other songs and not so much didn’t make the cut but we just kind of felt like, “Let’s just make a more succinct record”. As you mentioned it’s kind of like, I don’t know if you remember, but I remember in the 90s and early 2000s when people really liked to lean into the amount of music you could put on a compact disc became kind of like, “We’re going to do 17 songs”, and most people kind of were familiar with the first half of the album and then kind of went they just gave up or whatever. To me, it’s kind of more like the records I grew up on Destroyer or, Led Zeppelin 2, it’s like those were brief records and every single song is as important as the one before and the one after it. I think that that’s kind of what we tried to attempt to do with this record. So hopefully it kind of comes across.”
