An interview with the lads just dropped on the Certified Scribe blog here. The guys had this to say about the album;
“The three of us are definitely more proud of State Of The Art than any other record. Having said that, you always say that about your new record, but I really feel that this time. I really feel that this is the album that I can carry in my backpack and hand to any artist and be really proud having it represent us as a group. I think that we do best with the heavier tracks for sure.”
