Failure frontman/guitarist Ken Andrews had a chat with Noisey which touched on their legacy, their reunion and their new album. When asked how all the changes in their lives since their last release, 1996′s “Fantastic Planet“, might affect the new album, Andrews replied:
“…As an artist that’s a huge fear, that you’ll lose that spark, whatever it was that made your collaboration with your bandmates cool. That’s what we’re trying to accomplish, to come up with something that’s the next evolution in our albums, without going off track too far.
And you know, to use all the experiences we’ve had since our last record, and to use them. It’s kind of interesting, We’re just at the beginning of it now, so it’s hard to tell where its going to go. But there’s already enough diversity in the material, that it’s gonna feel as ambitious as Fantastic Planet in terms of different types of songs on that album.”
The band will soon be out on this headlining North American Tour.
