As we discussed their upcoming release, it became clear that nothing about the band has intrinsically changed, but that they were able to push themselves further while recording in Canada. Petersen even mentioned that they had recorded a few ballads. “We realized after it was all done, we made a Wings record,” joked Carroll. When asked for more specifics, the band all chimed in to call it BAD A$$ (sic). Kidding aside, they are proud of the efforts that it took to make the still untitled record. Judging from their first single, “Whatever, Forever,” they pull from the same themes of enlightened apathy that drove their first few releases, from the impatient blah blah blahs of “20 Years Tall,” to the disassociation of “The Fringe.”
