We re-recorded Orlando with the intention of it going on the album but by the end of our time in the studio we had changed our mind about it. We wrote a song for the No Sleep comp that changed quite a lot in the studio and came out way better than we thought it was going to, so we just swapped them out and that song ended up on the record/Orlando went on the comp.
Bands re-recording songs is always a bit of a weird move but I think we were really careful and selective about what went on this album. Bukowski and Boston sound so much better though, I’m really glad we made the choice to redo them and make them sound as good as we’ve always wanted them to.
On our last day in the studio, Beau played Bukowski back to us switching between the album version and Eddy’s home demo version from a few years ago, that was a really cool moment for me personally, that song is probably the reason this band even started.
I can’t wait for everyone to hear this record.

In April 2014 we flew from London to Los Angeles and had the absolute best time hanging out and recording our first album.
It’s always sunny in Los Angeles. For real.
