“We’ve always been a band that straddles styles,” says singer Josh Franceschi. “We’ve always had that pop sensibility, but we’ve tried not to pigeonhole ourselves – that’s come from other people.”
VI was about opening that breach, and letting the full scope of their creativity flood through.
“We’re not nervous about this record being different,” Flint says, “we’re excited. Our fans have grown up with us and they want to hear the music we like.”
“You have to make music for yourself,” Franceschi concludes, “because without authenticity people are going to smell the bullshit. None of us are going to into this with any fear, because we’ve made something we can stand behind.”<br>
