I had a chance to catch up with Drew Smith from Seattle’s Burn Burn Burn recently, and got some inside info on the band’s progress on their new album. The as-yet-untitled record is being recorded at The Autopsy Room by Noi!se guitarist (and fellow Washingtonian) Jesse O’Donnell.
The band focused on writing more technically-challenging songs, while keeping a simple, scaled-back sound and adding in lyrics that are important to the band personally. In Drew’s words, “If I can call it anything, I’d call ’em ‘bummed out party songs.'” We’ll have to see if they sound “bummed out,” but you can check out some check out some pictures of the “party” aspects of recording below.
Burn Burn Burn hasn’t set a release date yet for the new material, but word is that they will tour soon after it is released. As always, we’ll keep you posted on the details. Burn Burn Burn most recently released a split with the New Mexico melodic hardcore band Stabbed In Back on La Escalera Records. Their last full-length was 2013’s This Machine.
