The impending record will follow the band's 2013 LP, Letters Home.

Defeater has remained fairly inactive in 2014 due to frontman Derek Archambault's hip causing the group's touring efforts come to a halt. He recently underwent hip replacement surgery, however, which was made possible by a PledgeMusic campaign.
