The band separated from Equal Vision Records to independently release their new record, Waiting For Morning To Come, giving them total creative control over their new release.

“I think we cut the cord mentally and legally there. It’s like drawing a line in the sand and saying, 'We’re doing what we want now,' You know?” Ross told us about the band's move from label to independence.

“Before it’s like, you don’t want to let down your manager or your label or your publicist because they’re all 'your friend' who’s looking out for 'your best interest.' And I know they are, to an extent, but that extent is 'your best interest' in terms of sales, in terms of [money], which is the only mutual interest you share together. Your label doesn’t have a reason to care about your artistic fulfillment or your weirdness or your new ideas beyond what supplements the bottom line: 'If your quirks are selling, then let’s showcase them. If not, why would we bother?'”

For $5.99, you can hear their new album now. It's available for order here.

Waiting For Morning To Come is officially out this Friday, Sept. 8.
