Recorded in under two weeks, the band tried to stay focused and go with their gut instincts, rather than overthinking things. The end result is some of the best anthemic rock this side of Born to Run… They just dropped the How Good Does It Feel EP a few days ago, offering a sneak peak of what we can expect from their new album. Produced by John Congleton, who has worked with St. Vincent and The Mountain Goats, the new material is their most cohesive, accomplished work yet.
