The track draws influences from the likes of The Story So Far, Such Gold and Transit. The new album, produced Defeater’s Jay Maas, is an extreme jump forward for the band. The new single “Wistern”, along with “I’ve Been Places” (available exclusively on the Blood & Ink Records Summer Sampler), front very positive and heartfelt lyrics that fans have come to love.
“‘Time Spent’ is a whole new sound for us. We’ve changed in a lot of new ways and ‘Wistern’ is the foundation of that. It sets up not only our new musical approach, but it also prefaces the album’s theme of searching and asking questions. The song opens up the idea that we’re all just people trying to understand life and the difficulties that it can bring.”
Time Spent comes out September 25 via Blood & Ink Records and can be pre-ordered here.
