US electronic/post-hardcore band Palisades are set to release their latest album Palisades on January 20. Ahead of the release, we caught up with bassist/vocalist Brandon Elgar for a chat about the album, life on the road and horror movies.

Your self-titled album comes out on January 20, are you excited for people to hear it?

We can't even begin to describe how excited we are for everyone to hear this album. We put so much passion and heart into it and can't wait to connect with the fans on an even more personal level.

The album, which is fab by the way, has a more mature feel to it in comparison to your previous work and it also feels like you have truly found your sound. Do you think that you have found the best route for Palisades to go down?

We all definitely think that this is the best route for Palisades. We all came together as one and agreed that this style of music is how we want to express our true selves and creativity as artists and human beings.

Why did you decide to call the album Palisades?

We decided to make this a self titled album because we wanted to make a clear statement that this is who we are now. This is a brand new book for Palisades. Not a chapter. We have no features on this album. No gimmicks. It's just our true colors. And we want to welcome everyone to be a part of it.

The record comes almost two years to the day you released previous full length Mind Games, that has been a lot of time to work on the record, well when you had time off from touring! Do you think the long period helped or hindered the writing and recording process? I know some artists find that if there is a long period between records, they start to doubt whether the tracks are good enough. Did that happen to you?

I personally think that the amount of time between the albums has helped! We toured non-stop, added some new faces to the band and we also were still figuring out which direction we wanted this band to take. We stayed heavy hearted throughout the process and were able to still pull off creating an album that each of us believe in 100%.
