This came out so great; I’m so happy with how it looks and sounds. A big thank-you to everyone involved in designing the Infinity One.

Watch Now: Smooth Seas Never Made Good Sailors (LPTV)

This episode of LPTV takes place as we leave the studio, heading into album launch and the beginning of our tour…but after only few shows, Brad got an injury that threatened show cancellations.

We premiered a new 30-minute documentary tonight called “The Distortion of Sound,” produced by Harman, hosted by the Grammy Museum, and featuring music makers like Quincy Jones, Slash, Snoop Dogg, Hans Zimmer, and Steve Aoki. Did you know that virtually all the music we listen to today, from mp3s to streaming services like YouTube and Spotify, are compressed, degraded audio that sounds very little like the song the band heard when they were recording it?  To use an analogy: most people know there’s a big difference between a low quality photo and a high quality photo on their smartphone; the music we’re listening to is actually like the low quality photo, with information missing and details disfigured.  Check out DistortionOfSound.com to watch.

Pointless Dicks: @CHVRCHES, Laziness, and Cowards.

As we released THE HUNTING PARTY, I spoke on various occasions about the inspiration of the album.  Part of the answer is that the album is a response to a surplus of danceable, safe, indie-pop music that’s taken over “rock”.  A year ago, we knew the indie-pop thing was a style that our band is capable of making.  But we were not interested in pursuing it.  Why?  Because there is a LOT of it out…
