'I'm more excited about this record than any others we've done. We've created a beast that sounds massive. There's a lot of freedom in this record, I've felt liberated and closer to the spark that had me writing in the first place. We've been working so close with these songs from start to finish and it's felt right pouring ourselves into them. It's a very special record that feels closest to the energy of our live performance than any before.' - Ally Dickaty
