The band first shared news of the push-back on their official Instagram account posting a photo handwritten note.

A couple months back we announced we’d be releasing our album Nov 15th. It’s taken a little longer than expected and we just aren’t done with it yet. So we are moving this to early 2020. Rest assured there’s a lot of new music coming out very soon and we can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks for supporting us all these years and see you out there on The Degenerates Tour!

 

In an interview with WSOU, guitarist Kevin Skaff discussed some of the themes of the upcoming album, including why it’s the happiest record the band has written.

“I think just getting older and just being comfortable with ourselves,” he says. “Our lawsuit’s [with Victory Records] over. I think we’re all just in a good clear headspace. Everyone’s married, except me. If I was writing the songs, it would have been a lot more depressing.”

He goes on to state the reasoning for the album delay, saying they want every aspect of the LP to be just right.

“It got pushed back because the art for the record isn’t done yet,” Skaff says. “We still can’t find a good cover for the record. I know it doesn’t really matter nowadays, with streaming and everything, but we just want everything to be perfect before it comes out.”

“And there are still a couple of songs that are still getting mixed that we just need to find the right mixer. It’s only getting pushed back -what?- two, two and a half months, so it’s not too bad. It’s not like a Kanye [West] thing where it’s never gonna come out.”

You’re Welcome is slated to be released in early 2020 via Fueled By Ramen. The full new interview is available below.
