Here's something that Rian mentioned on reddit before to give you an idea of what they're aiming for:
"I hear you man, and I'll even agree that the cohesivness of the record was lacking. The 'problem' lies in the fact that we jumped around to different producers, so even if songs were similar, sonically there was a difference. We won't be doing that this next record so that won't be the issue. You know Avron mixed Dirty Work right? Hell of a guy."
Also he said this to me after I said mentioned how I didn't exactly like the direction the band was taking:
"I think you'll really enjoy the new record, I mean that, not just saying it. I appreciate the candid comment, and I understand where you are coming from."
So I am definitely looking forward to the new record.
