Jayson Whitehead of Las Vegas Weekly spoke with The Juliana Theory bassist Chad Alan about the band’s recent split with Epic and moves since then to create new material with a conscious attempt to pull back and return to a more basic, tight song structure. One new song, ‘My Heart Is a Soldier,’ starts with a driving guitar burst reminiscent of Interpol. Alan confirms the turn in direction. “That’s the approach we’re taking for the new record,” he says. “We just did a bunch of live takes of each song. That’s definitely a different approach for us as far as recording, and I think we’re going to stick with that for the new record. We’ll end up coming out with a more live, raw outcome than previously.”
