“When we started writing this record, I think we all kind of knew we had to change and really step out of our box and change it up,” drummer Nathan Young, primary composer of the musical end of “Self-Starter,” tells Billboard. “We’re a rock band, but we’ve got to progress with a sixth album. We wanted to keep it to that rock thing but just change it up.” Frontman Stephen Christian, meanwhile, says “Self-Starter” perfectly fit into the “vision” he had for the album.

3 days left of preproduction. Coming back to Seattle to start this album was the best decision we could have made. The connection we have with this place is incredible. We’ve all learned so much musically in the last fews years, that the process of making an album now is so different than the last time we worked with Sprinkle. We’re able to experiment more than we ever have, due to the comfort level we have with him and ourselves. We couldn’t be happier or more pumped in the decision we made to make this album here, and with him. It’s gonna be a fun few months.
Also, if I hear one more person say they hope it sounds like CITIES part 2, I might involuntarily punch you. We collectively love that album, and genuinely think it’s one of our best albums. But, why would we want to put out an album that sounds like a album we did 6 years ago? We want to progress and change with each album, yet still keeping the sound and vibe of what makes Anberlin, Anberlin. We’re so grateful for all of you and wouldn’t be making records if it weren’t for you guys. Our main goal is to make albums that you guys will love and will continue to love throughout the years. We’ll talk soon. Love you.
P.S. I won’t really punch you. -NY
