"It feels like a douchie move."
The band released Direct Hits, a collection of their hits, on November 11.
It features the singles from their first four studio albums.
Vannucci explains, "We’d wait another 10 years if it was up to us, but it’s a contractual thing. We can fill a CD so it makes good business sense at this time of year. However, it’s not like we’re so pleased with ourselves we want to put it out."
