Back in February, the band revealed that they were beginning to record their second album. Posting on Instagram, the band previously wrote: “#LP2 is written and arranged, we’ve got one last week of rehearsals and recording demos before we’re back to NYC in the studio with @danieljschlett! it’s been an intense 2+ years but i couldn’t be happier with the collection of songs those years have given me. excited for u to hear !”

Late last year it emerged that the band’s bass player Devin Ruben Perez had posted a number of sexist, racist and homophobic statements on a 4Chan messageboard.
