The band (and Epitaph Records) have been teasing the announcement for a while now, sharing images of a ball of string getting up to all sorts of adventures backed by the number 6.
Speaking to Upset earlier this year, vocalist Jason Aalon Butler explained, “I feel there is such a drought and, I’ll go on record saying this, I feel like there are so many bands claiming that they are part of this revolutionary moment in time and they want to spearhead it, but then they get offstage and there’s no activism, there’s no proactivity. There’s no passion in what you say if you’re only saying it onstage. At times it can seem cumbersome and at times a heavy weight to carry but that’s the name of the game in revolution, that’s the name of the game in change. A lot of the people that tried to change things, that did change things, are dead.”
“That is the sad truth. That’s just the sad truth. So if you really want to be a part of it and really want to disrupt that system that you lament so heavily in your work then you need to scarily invest in something that might, I’m not going to say take your life, but push back and cause a lot of anguish. But if it’s worth it to you in the end then you keep doing it.”
