"We've already got ten tunes fully written and another 15 we're kind of working on here and there," he tells Noisecreep. "When I'm not on the road I'm still working, I never stop. And it's really good, everything we're doing is really, really good."
"I can say the material is darker than 'Come Whatever May,' but a lot more melodic, a lot stronger, a lot more mature, and the lyrics that are coming out of me are really good. I'm really excited."
