mewithoutYou just played Paramore's Parahoy! cruise, and while they were on the cruise, Billboard interviewed them. They revealed in the interview that they have a new Will Yip-produced album that they're expecting to release this fall. It'll be the followup to their great 2015 album Pale Horses (also produced by Will Yip). Here's more from the interview:
On the sound of mewithoutYou’s nearly-complete forthcoming studio LP:
Mazzotta: “We finished a banger with [producer] Will Yip. It bangs! I’m pretty hyped on it. It took a long time to make, too. It took over a year… It’s still not 100% done, I’m going back into the studio the week we get home.”
M. Weiss: "It keeps getting heavier and heavier as things progress with it."
Mazzotta: "It covers new heavy territory I don’t think we’ve never been in… [Frontman] Aaron [Weiss]'s taken a scream. And [there's] instrumental territory that’s trippy, weird, stuff we never would have dreamed of doing…Trippy in a heavy sense, and a chill sense. The summation of our whole career is on this, and then some."
And when it might come out:
Mazzotta: "I’d say [a fall release is] a pretty safe assumption. What it’s called, I’m not sure yet and I don’t know if I could tell you if I wanted to… I’m hoping for the fall."
Sounds promising! While you wait, watch the video for "Red Cow" and "Dorothy" from Pale Horses, below.
