When asked about working on the full-length follow-up to These Times, the band says they’ve been trying to write and record while on the road. Henshaw said they’ll probably take a few weeks off after the tour wraps, then get back into the studio to finish up what Brown deemed, "the best record we've ever done."
As far as the direction of the music on their third record goes, Brown said that it’s going to be similar to their first two records, but with "modifications."
“Each time, you’re not trying to change your sound, you’re just trying to hone it down and find the thing that you think connects the most with your audience and then the thing that makes you feel passionate when you’re playing it,” he explained.
“You’re kind of damned if you do, damned if you don’t with music. You’re not going to please everybody, but you gotta make sure that you try to listen to the core of your fans. And then you’re listening to you and that you’re passionate about it. That’s the thing we’ve noticed being on the road the last five years. The people that have the best fan bases, they’re passionate about the music they’re playing and that passion translates live and people are drawn to it.”
SafetySuit is wrapping up their tour in Texas this week. On Thursday, October 4, they'll be in Dallas at The Loft and on Friday, October 5, they'll be in Houston at the Scout Bar.
