Spending time in preproduction and developing ideas for songs in a more natural manner is something Less Than Jake recently adopted, trombone player Buddy Schaub tells Australia’s Time Off magazine. “We took a lot longer to work on the writing aspect of the record,” he explained. “In the early days we’d just tour, tour, tour and then it was like, ‘OK, time to do a record!’ and we’d some of the songs written and we’d go into the studio. It was a real rushed atmosphere. At some point we decided to just take off a little bit, write and clear our heads for a little while, take some time to ourselves, and then start writing. Then [we’d] take a little time off, tour and try the songs out, come back and rework them.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
