Release Date: August 25, 2017

It’s been just over twenty years since this American rock group formed and they’re still going strong with their seventh studio album, Villains.

This preview included an excerpt of their song, “Feet Don’t Fail Me,” and the single, “The Way You Used To Do”, was unveiled shortly after. Could this be “the best album ever?” The polygraph suggests so!
