So you’re almost like better off releasing songs here and there kind of. So we put out “Coming For You”. It was just last year, I think? Something like that. And we’ve got like three songs done, and a fourth song almost done, so we’re just gonna get back in the studio as soon as we can. So how will it take us to do eight more songs? I don’t know.

Noodles was also asked if the new album has a title yet, and his response was, “No, not until we have a bunch of songs that are kind of cohesive. We’re not really far enough along to figure out a vibe or concept. We have about four songs that are done. Not even at the halfway point yet.”
