Zac Johnson of FRND CRCL says there is a downside to the lack of performing live, but it will give fans more time to get familiar with the band’s new album, which drops May 1.
The band’s new album Internet Noise is their latest since their 2017’s album Immuniversity. Johnson joined The Roman Show to talk about the band’s new jams.
Loose Cannon and Deception are the latest singles. Single Loose is all about happy times, said Johnson.
“We wanted to drop this because it is fun some,” he said. “It’s a good idea of what people can expect from the rest of it.”
He later added, “It is about embracing the spirit of punk rock or the individual. For me it is about growing up in general and getting through life. It was delivered in a fun way that people were receptive to it.”
Moreover, Johnson said there are major differences between the freshman and sophomore record.
“It’s a night day difference. We have a new member,” he said. “We have a lead guitarist to change the dynamic. The way we approached this album is different you can hear. We matured over time.”
The band pays homage to the likes of legendary pop punk bands as Blink-182, SUM 41 and Good Charlotte.
COVID-19 has changed the way we look at music since concerts aren’t present at this time. The band is thinking about potentially hosting a live stream performance. Information will be available on their social media pages. The New Jersey band has a release party scheduled for May 29. He shared his thoughts on potential changes to live shows.
“This will change on public safety. It is changing the way we look at things but maybe have hand sanitizers at the entrance,” he said.
Either way, the band is itching to play the music on stage. In the meantime, fans will have to enjoy the new music on their favorite device.
