What are you doing after the APMAs? What can you tell us about the new album?

The plan is to finish up the album. It’s just so close now! Getting that done is going to take up a lot of our time. I have 10 or 11 songs written that are huge candidates to be on the album, and I’m just going to keep writing. That’s plenty of songs to make an album, but what I like to do now is write about 15 or 16 songs, and pick my 10 or 11 favorites that I feel share the same message and mentality to go on the album and essentially become this yearbook.
