In Their Words: “Everyone says ‘You write what you know,’ and I definitely think the songs on Dead Ringer tell stories of the people we’ve met, experiences we’ve had (both good and bad), and challenges we’ve faced during the last decade of being in this band. Musically and lyrically, we took bigger risks on this record: There’s more of an edge and sass to it. We stopped caring if we said a curse word or if the guitars were too loud or if a note wasn’t executed perfectly. If we wanted to try something different, we did — no matter if it fit in our ‘genre’ or not. Ultimately, I think Dead Ringer has a vibe and a sound that finally seems to truly reflect who we are as people and musicians. We’re immensely happy with the outcome.” — Lauren Staley
