Shihad spoke with Time Off magazine about their experiment with technology in an attempt to deliver a new sound on their new album. “We’re really trying to use technology to break down some fu**ing doors we haven’t tried before,” frontman Jon Toogood explained. “When you hear a band say ‘We’re fu**ing with technology’ it’s always scary, because rock bands and technology often reminds me personally of fu**ing rap-metal or something like that. We’re taking cues from records we’ve always loved plus left-of-centre New Zealand bands like Headless Chickens and stuff like that. I am so fu**ing confident in this record to not just have three cool songs at the start and then peter out; it’ll be 11 songs that take you on a journey, and all hold up in their own right.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
