Meanwhile, frontman Adam Lazzara told NME earlier this year he would never write lyrics addressing the current political climate in the US. “I don’t think I’m educated enough about all of that to be given so much commentary on it,” he said. “And, at the end of the day, it’s really not all that important to me.”
He added he found the country’s government “extremely embarrassing” but he tried to “stay out of politics. “It’s one of the things you don’t talk about at dinner and so forth,” he said. “But that guy and what’s happening at home right now doesn’t represent me or really anyone that I know or have met.”
