PAINT IT BLACK haben die Arbeiten an ihrem, noch unbetitelten, neuen Album abgeschlossen und haben sich in einem Interview bereits zu dem neuen Material und ihrem Produzenten geäußert. Hier das Statement:
The band has reportedly finished recording and are currently in the "post production and little odds and ends and stuff phase of the process. The band addresses the choice of renowned underground hip hop producer, Oktopus, noting:
"[Dälek] sounds like fuckin bulldozer insanity. Ive always loved the way their records sound and the mood everything is really dense. I kind of feel that hardcore I love hardcore, we all do, but I kind of feel its always in danger of getting stale. You always have to challenge the form a little bit, in order to keep yourself interesting."
Des weiteren hat Dan auch ein interessantes Statement bezüglich des Einflusses von Nirvana auf die Musik von PAINT IT BLACK abgegeben:
"Nirvana was one of the fucking punkest bands ever, I thought. In terms of what they did with mainstream music, I think they did what Black Flag did to music in like the early 80s. Thats one band that I think we all love. I mean you wouldnt ever listen to any of the songs and think, Oh, this sounds like Nirvana. There are definitely certain problems in structure that got solved like WWND, What Would Nirvana Do?"
