Check out this interview with AbsolutePunk.net as the guys discuss the direction of the new album & sound.
Musically, you guys have kind of been a bit quiet besides singles and the news of a fourth studio album. What got you inspired to get back at creating a full body of work this time around, and how do you think where you’ve been already plays into your writing mindset?
Motte: We very consciously decided to take some time off from touring as 3OH!3, at the end of last summer. We wanted to focus on external writing and production (for other artists) - something that we have done a lot of in the past, but we have never really carved time out for that purpose.
As we knew we wanted to put a new record out in 2012, Sean and I decided to spend all of December in Colorado, where I have my studio, writing for 3OH!3, and that kicked off the writing process. Writing and producing for this record has been really rewarding, because I feel like we're finally getting to use all the knowledge and technique that we've picked up in the last 4 years. We're doing most of the record A to Z on our own (from writing to recording to producing and mixing), and that, to me, is really exciting. Taking that kind of autonomy into making this next body of work was inspiration in itself.
