It's been four years since AM, and rumors have been circulating with different accounts of the band entering the studio or with plans to release the album in the summer of 2017. With fall here, it's safe to say those rumors ended up being false. 

In the interview, O'Malley says, "The new album will be out next year because ‘if it isn’t, we’ve got problems’."
