After the wave of fame that followed The Neighbourhood with their 2013 debut, the California natives have returned with their sophomore effort, entitled Wiped Out! and set to release on October 30th, 2015.
The lead single “R.I.P. 2 My Youth” premiered on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio as well as other American radio stations.
In an interview with KROQ, bassist Mikey Margott mentioned initially having 30 songs to work with before slimming down to the tracklist cut. Frontman Jesse Rutherford expressed the band’s desires to write a solid album “that you listen to as a project”:
"Making decisions with people all together is a challenge no matter what. We’re really close, we really love each other, and I think we respect each other’s opinions but even with that being said, agreeing on one product to put out, especially creatively and musically is a lot to do sometimes. We’re all opinionated little bitches so it’s hard for us to agree on stuff sometimes."
