Statement from vocalist Cory BrandanAfter making ‘Meridonal,’ we really didn’t know what we were going to do next. It’s hard to imagine that after coming out of so much work and thought being poured into something, but we’re starting to see this new record take shape and all I can say right now is it’s going to be nasty. If anything, ’Meridional’ ended up inspiring us to continue moving forward and doing what we love to do. We also moved our writing space out of Atlanta this time for a new atmosphere where I live in Arkansas. We isolated ourselves a lot more and spent a lot of time together. We’ll continue working and will be recording in January with Jeremy Griffith again. We’re really excited and are having a blast.”

I wonder who they will have playing guitar on this album since the other one needed a lot of time off.

I wonder who will play anything, there's only three permanent members in the band right now... I'd assume the sound for the new stuff will be a lot more straight forward than the last album was and that was pretty heavy.

Here's hoping they don't blatantly rip off Thrice or another band again! That song ruined Meridonial for me (although it was a great album)
