The new album explores large-scale themes of life-changing loss, loneliness, and the innate anxiety of living in the political and digital climate of 2019. Problems is a dynamic, raucous collection of anthemic tracks full of sing-along-worthy melodies, pounding drum lines, and riotous, driven guitar riffs.
“A big part of the reason why we started writing new songs in the first place is that we have things we want to say about this moment in time,” frontman Matt Pryor explains in a statement. “We’re still so connected to our past and where this all came from – it’s definitely a celebration of the fact that we still get to do this.”
