The follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed ARIA No.1 album For Those That Wish To Exist, the classic symptoms of a broken spirit came together so fast, that they've barely stopped to celebrate the prior record's success. the classic symptoms of a broken spirit was produced by the band's own drummer Dan Searle and guitarist Josh Middleton, with additional production from vocalist Sam Carter at Deacon’s Middle Farm Studios and their own HQ, Electric Studios in Brighton. The band were buoyed by finally being back in the room together after their last album was made mostly remote due to COVID restrictions. The result is a record with a more living spirit, as Searle explains.
"It's free, playful and spontaneous. This one feels more live, more exciting and more fun - it has that energy."
Carter adds "We wanted it to be a lot more industrial and electronic”
You can hear both of these statements come to life on Tear Gas. As per the press release issued with the record, the classic symptoms of a broken spirit will feature layers of electronic and industrial elements, infusing the album with a blast of energy that sets the cinematic moodscape for the 11-track ride.
