"This record is a rock record but our punk rock upbringing definitely shines through, more so than our last few records," singer/guitarist Matt Skiba tells Spinner. "The vibe is similar to our humble beginnings. It’s a step forward but I also think it has glimmers of our past in it."
To recapture the sound of the early days, Skiba says the band took a simpler approach to recording the album. While Skiba says there’s a little bit of synth on the record and one trumpet solo in the style of Neutral Milk Hotel, not ska-punk, the band mainly kept things straightforward.
"We went with a less-is-more approach on this record. A lot of it is just one guitar rather than overdubs or three or four guitars," he says. "We wanted a record that we could easily play live. For the most part, it’s pretty bare bones while still sounding full and big."
