While there isn't a note of singing to be found on the album, the band's song titles reveal the breadth of emotions and playfulness found within. 'The Sycophants Are Coming! The Sycophants Are Coming!' bursts forth with a nervous tension while the humorlessly named 'Marriage Is The New Going Steady' illustrates that an inspired guitar lick can say just as much as words in a love song. Then there's the aptly titled 'Ian Mackaye Was Right,' a nod to the DIY pioneer of Minor Threat and Fugazi fame. 'I've had seven record deals, major and indie, it never seemed to work,' bassist Dunn reveals. 'As soon as we started doing things on our own is when we found success. That's what that song is about.' Like the last two, this LP will be out on their Fake Record Label imprint.
