The guitarist told Guitar World that SEVEN played a weird connection in the album.
I took a picture pointing to the number seven while we were recording, and a lot of the riffs Justin [Chancellor] and I brought in were in seven. You don’t really go, ‘I’m going to write a riff in seven!’… Without being too descriptive about the concept, the main thing is that the seven beat just kept coming up, and riffs in seven kept coming up. It was really weird!
Jones says the album will have 7 songs clocking in at 80 minutes. Fear Inoculum is due out August 30th. Pre-orders for the album will go live on Wednesday (ironically the 7th of August).
