In Revolver’s February/March issue, they sat down with vocalist Greg Puciato.

Puciato had this to say about the new album:

I hate to always be the person that’s like, ‘This is our best new album,’ because I think every time it’s the best one. I’m realizing that all you can try to do is take an honest snapshot of where everyone is at the moment and hope that that place happens to be good when you look back at it. When you’re in it, you’re too emotionally attached to it to really gain any kind of hindsight to it. Now that we’ve been around for a while, I can kind of be a little bit more objective and see what records were the ones where we made big leaps — the obvious ones, like ‘Calculating Infinity’, was a big jump, and I feel like ‘Miss Machine’ was a really big jump. I feel like our work on ‘Option Paralysis’ was like us refining ‘Miss Machine’. It wasn’t like we were making colossal jumps. This is the first one since ‘Miss Machine’ where I felt like, wow, all of us as individuals and collectively are moving into, like, some other phase of our career. I think we’ve all just gotten a lot better as individuals and we’ve already had our fucking growing pains and we’ve already fought our brains out. We went from being kids to adults together. We kind of all realized our strengths and how to leave one another alone and not have ego clashes. I think this record is the record where we’re like adults now. People have gotten married or we have serious girlfriends, like, really major shit has gone down in our lives, and it just seemed really… it seemed like less edge-of-our-pants, not knowing if we were gonna pull it together.

Fans worried about how Jeff Tuttle’s departure from the band will affect this album, can rest easy. Puciato notes in the interview that he wasn’t a “creative force.”

A specific release date hasn’t been announced yet but the album will drop sometime this Spring.
