Secret Machines have explained that their forthcoming album was largely written on the road, and owes a lot to their the audiences.

“We started writing the record last January in preparation for the touring we did last year,” frontman Brandon Curtis told Billboard.

“Basically, all the material, with the exception of maybe two or three songs, was really finished and completed structurally and lyrically on tour. The feedback from performing in front of an audience was really instructive in how the songs were put together. I’m not sure I’d say I’d do it every time, but it was an interesting thing to do.”

The album is expected to be released in March.
