I decided this time around to open up more with my writing, be a little more free and personal, and worry less about how songs would be perceived by different audiences, or how they’d be classified,” Jones tells P&P. “I guess I made less of an effort to force songs into molds. A lot seemed to flow from there, and that in turn led the band members to come up with some fresh musical ideas as well. The result I think was music that’s more distinctly ‘us’ than it’s ever been.
