Hale unveiled the news in an interview with Atlanta’s Rock 105.
“We pretty much decided that in late spring, I think we’re gonna settle down and just focus on doing another record,” Hale said. “It’s crazy. After we finished the last record, Vicious, we had so much material that wasn’t even recorded; we had a lot of material that was recorded that wasn’t even included on the record.”
“Since then, we have about two albums’ worth of material. So it’s almost like Vicious was a launchpad for all this new stuff to come. So I can’t wait to actually get it down and show it to everybody,” she continued.

In a new interview for Heavy magazine, Hale discussed the reactions from adults when she started the band at age 13.
“All of our teachers would have interventions. We started a rock band, and they would try to tell us, like, ‘Hey, that’s actually a stupid idea. You shouldn’t be putting all your eggs in one basket and you shouldn’t be obsessed with a band. You should be looking at going to college,’” she said.
“I went to a high school where you’re pretty much told the same thing. If you signed up to do music or drama, you’re always told by the teachers, ‘Hey, it’s good that you want to do this class, but it’s not a future,’” she continued. “We had quite a bit of defiance at that point because I don’t know, all of a sudden, everything came second.”
The story came after she reflected on the band’s crazy set at this year’s Download Festival.
“Apparently in the history of Download, we had the most attendance for our second-stage headlining spot and also I guess I was the first girl to headline that stage,” Hale said. “It’s pretty special to walk out on a stage like that.”
That moment was “emotional” for the band and helped them prove those teachers wrong.
“Hey this proves that yes we were crazy but we were not stupid and this was not a stupid idea,” Hale said her brother said about their success.
