“It has to be organic. You know it’s like ‘I want to finish three songs by this tour’, and then I do that and I can’t even think anymore. ‘Is that the best line I can write or am I trying to meet a deadline?’
“My goal is to be in the studio by Fall. Unfortunately, I have to write the record of my career right now. That’s the pressure I put on myself.”
This isn’t the first of recent updates on the new Social D record that we’ve covered. Nearly a month ago, Mike said that the band had approximately 20 new songs completed, and then a week-and-a-half ago, he hinted at entering the studio in about six months. Whenever the new record arrives, it will be the band’s first since 2011’s Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes.
