A couple of weeks ago, the band shared the news that they would soon be going into the recording studio to begin work on their first album in almost two years, and today, it appears that time has come.

The band took to Instagram to share the exciting news yesterday, Aug. 19, where they announced that they are currently in the studio working on their eighth studio album.

The band’s next effort will be a follow-up to their 2016 album, Polar Similar.

There’s not much to report on in regards to the band’s newest album, but we’re beyond excited to see the guys working on our first taste of music since 2016.

Writing for the next record has begun (see below,) and we’ll be sure to keep you updated!

The band will be hitting the road for a two-date set of shows later this month. Check out the dates below!
