Frontman Justin Pierre discusses the different ideas the band pursued when writing Go, being obsessed with mortality and how his dark past continues to play a role in his lyrics.
"Through the last couple of years Iíve noticed this shift with all of my friends getting married and growing up. People are having kids, parents are becoming grandparents, people are dying. I hadnít really noticed that being drunk or whatever for so many years. Then suddenly it was like, 'Whoa, I graduated high school almost 20 years ago. Thatís crazy. What happened? This is really fast.' I think Iíve just really been obsessed with that throughout the writing of this record in particular, so almost every song has some form of that in it, in one way or another."
