Nashville, TN’s Better Off has announced plans for their sophomore full length. The disc will be titled Milk and is set for releas eon September 11, 2015 via Equal Vision Records. The album was produced by Arun Bali (Saves The Day), engineered/mixed by Matt McClellan (Being As An Ocean, Better Off), and mastered by Kris Crummett (The Early November, The Story So Far). Better Off vocalist/guitarist Luke Granered comments:
“Milk, as a whole, is basically a landmark of maturation and solidarity for us as a band… We went in knowing what we wanted the record to sound like and not caring if it fit in with any group of bands specifically, which can be a serious setback sometimes creatively speaking. Big guitar sounds, hooky choruses, guitar solos. We just wanted it to be a rock record, and something we could enjoy playing for a very long time.”
Coinciding with the announcement, the band has premiered the track “Whatever, I Don’t Care.” Granered sheds light on the song’s message:
“‘Whatever, I Don’t Care’ is about a generation of Internet activists that are ready to be mad at anything in a moment’s notice, and are ready to tear each other apart by any means necessary. But only if it’s not in person, because what they are passionate about tends to be forgotten when they log off. Typically, the focus of the anger is misplaced and unnecessary.”
