The Plain White T’s are releasing their upcoming eighth studio album Parallel Universe, on Aug. 24 via Fearless Records.
This is their first release with the label in 13 years, Universe more than symbolically marks the band’s return to their pop-punk roots; it pushes aside the massive success of their Hot 100 chart-topping tune “Hey There Delilah” and allows the band to confront more pressing concerns in their own personal lives. Lead singer and songwriter Tom Higgenson reflects on the band’s early days of chasing success and not being quite prepared for it once it hit, along with the freedom that comes with letting it all go.
Though the band seems to suggest a complete mirror-image reversal with Parallel Universe, the new and improved Plain White T’s still are as dope as ever.
Parallel Universe pre-orders are available now here.
