The band came together with the intention of being as nimble as possible after Matthew Moldowan and Jeffrey Josiah Powell's previous project called it a day in 2010. Within a year, they were in the studio with producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara/The New Pornographers) working on the album. For a preview, head here to give the track 'Hey Judas' a listen.
When the opportunity to work with the busy Redekopp presented itself, the pair jumped on it.
"We scrambled. It really happened all of sudden," Moldowan said in a statement. Even though Redekopp brought his trademark vintage synths to Moldowan and Powell's pop sound, Moldowan said he couldn't resist bringing hooks to the album's 11 tracks.
"I have a short attention span so if a record doesn't catch me in the first listen or two, I probably won't put it back on the record player," he said.
