An excerpt from the article with Pete can be found below.
So how far along into the new album are you guys?
I have about five songs recorded and about ten total written. So I think we definitely could have an album out in January, I would hope.
Is ‘Centuries’ an indicator of what the new stuff will sound like?
I think so, in the same way that ‘My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up) was an indicator of the last album, or ‘Sugar, We’re Goin Down’ was an indicator of From Under the Cork Tree. Those are the songs that we’ll build a body of work around, but then there will be other things. Like, that’s probably the dead centre of the way the record will sound, but there will be other things far to the left of that and far to the right of that. We’ve always been a band that cares about our body of work. Our albums are important to us. They’re not something to just throw away. So the whole album’s not going to sound like ‘Centuries’, but that’s a good indicator of where we’re at and what the stuff will sound like sonically. We’ve benefited from great mixers and producers like Butch Walker. Sometimes it sounds bigger when you add less to it. Sometimes that’s hard for a young band to wrap their head around.
