British crossover thrashers SSS recently finished recording their new album, PROBLEMS TO THE ANSWER, which is due to be released later this year on Earache Records.
SSS frontman FOXY discusses the artwork for the forthcoming new album:
“Finally we have some art! Our good friend PUTRID did it for us (www.putridgore.com). No airbrushed neon unicorn slop here. It’s straight up black and white pen and ink. The art shows two dogs, they are joined and are fighting against themselves. No matter which way they turn, they can never escape each other. They’re going round in circles, trying to survive, putting up with aggravation on the way. The back of the record shows the outcome to this life-cycle situation.”

SSS recently released a new track from PROBLEMS TO THE ANSWER, to give fans a taster of what’s to come from the album.
FOXY discusses the new track, titled “Painting By Numbers”:
“Painting by Numbers deals with learning through memorization and repetition. It’s about going through the motions, going up to the borders of what’s expected and not beyond. The same elements being cut and pasted into a different order appear new but are really the same, tired and watered down. Memorize, learn, repeat, stagnate.
“Nothing should ever be a given – break down imposed barriers and always scrawl over the lines.”
