A Day To Remember wanted to release a double album but ended up just releasing one.

In a recent interview with HEAVY, guitarist Kevin Skaff revealed that the band originally wanted to release a double album as they had so many songs prepared their upcoming record, You’re Welcome. He also revealed that the new album is their “most out there album” yet, musically.

“Musically it’s our most…it’s definitely our most out there album,” Skaff told HEAVY. “It’s all over the place sonics wise and genre-wise. We just decided to go for it and we had so many songs prepared for the album that it was probably gonna be like that anyways. We actually wanted to put out a double album but the powers that be wanted us to just put out one (laughs).”

Additionally, The band shared that they had over forty demoed songs for the new project, of which only 14-tracks made the cut and are set to appear on You’re Welcome.

“It was honestly just the band and managers and the label,” Skaff explained to the outlet. “We all just got in one room and listened to all the demos we had then knocked it down to – I think it was 25 – and then we just started recording. After that, it went on for a little while then we all got back in the same room and cut it down again so it was just like a democratic vote – and yes we do know what democratic voting is in America (laughs).”

YouTube video

You’re Welcome comes out Friday, March 5, via Fueled By Ramen/Warner Music.
