The Neighbourhood Reveal New Song 'R.I.P. 2 My Youth'

(Radio.com) LA natives The Neighbourhood stopped by The Kevin & Bean Show on KROQ Los Angeles to world premiere "R.I.P. 2 My Youth" from their forthcoming sophomore album Wiped Out, due October 30.

The SoCal group sat down to answer questions about recording the new album. On 'RIP 2 My Youth' "To be honest I think the lyrics kind of describe it the best. I think just hearing it is probably the best way to explain it," says frontman Jesse Rutherford.

"I feel like it could really go for all of us as far as what has happened in our life in the past couple years and the awesome opportunities we've been able to have. I think kind of reflecting back on it--growing up per se, whether you want to or not. Sometimes your youth--some people have it taken away from them earlier and some people get to wait a little longer before you have to grow up, but either way the world kind of hits you."

On Recording 'Wiped Out' "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 b--s so it's hard for us to agree on stuff sometimes."

"We've been going 12 to 12 Monday to Friday," adds bassist Mikey Margott. "Ideally we'd get more time but we've just been busy mixing and making the album. We were only going to be in there for like a month, but it would have been nice to have 2 months and still do 12 to 12." Read more and check out the new song here.
