In an interview with London Free Press, Matt discusses how the band has been working on their new material, and he also looks to how far they’ve come and the modest success they’ve achieved.

Click on the link above to read the entire interview, here are a couple of snippets:

How does the new material you’ve been working on compare with your older songs?
Aaron has given me about 10 ideas so far. He seems to be in some sort of really weird creative space. He recently had a baby, so maybe it’s a lack of sleep. He’s wired differently. The songs he’s given me are much less cerebral and academic and much more immediate and visceral than usual. I’m in love with them. I just spent all night listening over and over to some things he sent. I think they’re some of the best things he’s ever written. And I think it might be because he’s not thinking about it that much. He isn’t putting everything through the filter of Important Music as he has in the past. The music just seems to be working on a pure gut level.

Slowly but surely, you’ve been getting more popular and successful with every album. How are you dealing with the approach of fame?
You mean, with not turning into rich a–holes? (Laughs) I don’t think we’ve changed that much. I know I’ve gotten grumpier. But that’s just from spending so much time on a bus with a bunch of grown men.
Everybody gets a little grumpy. But when we started the band I was already 30, so I never fell into any of the traps or pitfalls that can happen to young people when they’re in a successful rock band. We’ve done shows with The Strokes and seen the crazy world that surrounds them. It’s great and exciting — your fantasy of what an awesome rock band is. But we’ve always felt like we never will be that big, you know. And that’s OK. I know I’m not going to be an astronaut either.

The band will play a sold-out show at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom tomorrow night. I am so excited to see them again.
