!!! are going all-out excitement for their next album Thr!!!er, due out on Apr. 30 via Warp Records. They broke out of past songwriting and album recording processes by getting the whole !!! tribe together to go into the studio with songs already developed and structured. This time they already knew what they wanted to do.
“In the past we just put albums together any way that works. That usually meant a lot of jamming on loose ideas. We’ve never tried to make the same record twice, we might have accidentally, but we’ve always tried to push on. For this one it felt like we definitely shoved off from the shore,” said vocalist Nic Offer.
This allowed them to focus on other things in the recording studio. Producer Jim Eno (Spoon) tried to move the band out of their mold of trying to recapture their famous live show to do something different: “They had this working flow that was a little rigid and I wanted to break them out of it,” he said.
