The band, aka Chad Nicefield (vocals), Jason Spencer (lead guitars), Kyle Landry (rhythm guitars), James Lascu (bass), and Matt Puhy (drums), worked alongside Scott “The Ninja“ Stevens to produce the new record. Advance hype declares the recording to be 11 songs that embrace a musical direction shift for the band, one toward rock with a contemporary crossover of other stylistic influences.
A new single, “Like A Baller“, and its official video seem to indicate a turn toward clear cut hip-hop tinting in its contents. The video for the song, produced and directed by Raymond Rivard and Chad Nicefield for Tradesmen Films, follows the adventures of a parking valet as he travels the journeys of life and can be seen below.
Nicefield comments: “I just kind of realized who we are as people and our DNA was that of a bunch of lovable, silly dudes that love to make music. That needs to be transparent in our music.“
