Seanny123 Standard grungy alt-rock, but sometimes that's exactly what you want to listen to. As a bonus, the production is top-notch! Favorite track: Scratch.

about

“At the core, this record is about disappointment. We called it Probably Not because it was a phrase that kept coming up in all situations.” “I’d question the possibility of something good happening, and 9/10 times I’d end up with an answer like ‘meh, probably not’. And that’s really fitting for how I felt while writing these songs. The recording process took place at two different locations. The first of the two was Mission Control studios, a home studio in the basement of Tidal Records co-owner Dustin Jones’ house. It’s the first full record we’ve ever made. We had already recorded this album once with my good friend Keith Conway in his basement with a little less equipment. We were almost done tracking and then we got signed to Tidal. From there Jonesy suggested that we redo it at his place. To be frank, we were already done with these songs. But it would have been nice to get some more help to do what we wanted, so we went with it.” - Mikus

“It was tough making the album, it took a lot of work and a lot of stress. It could have been done better but in the end it was worth it. It was worth it to finally be able to say "these songs are real, and I can prove it because it's on this disk and it is raw and passionate and I may have screwed up but that's music.” I play music for that raw, passionate feeling you get.” - Rosso

“Trying to get schedules to work together was probably the most difficult. I was in the 11th grade at the time, so daytime sessions were a write off. Instead we took every evening we could over the course of a year and turned it into an album. We probably spent a couple weeks at most actually working on the album. We parted ways with our original bassist Steve Edwards for the best interest of the band. So then many parts were redone, a decision I made to repair the original mistakes that were made in the first sessions. With all the pressure adding up, we ended up almost not having a band before the album even made release day. Jones decided early in the album’s creation that a younger, more open-minded and aspiring producer would be a good choice to bring into the sessions to help balance the feel. That young man was 26-year-old Dustin Goodall.” - Mikus

"I think the process of recording this album was an educational one for everyone involved, especially myself. Everyone went outside of their comfort zones to take risks and experiment - sometimes things worked, other times they didn't. But in the end I think we ended up with a record that captures the reckless joyride through a studio environment that it truly was. And it sounds like it needed to... like something beginning." - Goodall

“We believe in living each moment with passion and intensity. We talk about the things that we feel strongly about and so we want our friends to be encouraged to feel comfortable with doing the same thing. If they’re coming to our show, they’re coming for a cathartic and relieving experience.” - Mikus

“After months of spending volunteered time recording, mixing and mastering this record, Goodall became an obvious choice to fill in for Edwards on the 4-string. He truly is a rock for us, and he’ll always be apart of this band, whether he’s in it or not. I’m happy with this record. I’m glad it’s early on, so I can keep working towards the best sounding music we can make, in fact it’s got me extremely positive for the future, making art. Overall, I think what I’ve learned is to never expect anything from music, cause that’s too much. That, and fuck click tracks.” - Mikus
