Originally posted by popmarter:SOE is 5 years old to them now as most of it was written in 2014 along with SOI but what the intentions of the band are now remains unclear maybe they should take a long break or throw out a few EPs every so often and not tour them,but I don't think they will take too long to resurface as they aren't getting any younger.

As was pointed out last night SOE probably wasn’t written in 2014. Danger mouse was involved in almost every song for SOI I’m sure whatever studio work they did back then he would have to be credited on and he wasn’t for SOE so they must have worked on SOE later than that. Or possibly the songs were at a very early stage that they weren’t really anything like the finished product. I think if the album was ready in 2014 or 2015 even they would have released it early 2016 and toured it then. There was no reason to have that year off if the album was near completion.
