Listen to the track below:
“We as a band have been trying to facilitate certain ideas in recording and songwriting. Songwriting isn’t always just giving our fans ‘Psychosocial’s and ‘Surfacing’s — without saying it, sometimes we can write those songs in our sleep; it’s so in us,” he said.
“It’s what we don’t know and what we don’t know how to pull out is what is the love for humanity. I wanna make a difference.”
Elsewhere, he also discussed the band’s unreleased tribute song to former bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010.
“We have a song that we wrote for Paul Gray called ‘Without the Gray’, and it’s probably my fault, but I’ve held it for a long time,” he said.
“I don’t know why. It was too close in the beginning and it seemed like it needed to be for us more than for everyone else.”
