3 Doors Down Wanted To Avoid Their Own Sound On New Album

(New Rock Times) 3 Doors Down deliberately tried to stray away from the sound which made them famous on their new record says frontman Brad Arnold. The Missisippi rockers have racked up album sales north of 20 million in their 20-year career.

But Arnold tells Music Times.com that the band made a conscious effort to make an album which was 'not another 3 Doors Down record.' Expanding on the band's decision to offer something different with their new album Arnold reveals a desire to avoid being pigeonholed as another factor.

"We always said that we'd leave ourselves a left turn, and we wouldn't pigeon hole our sound," he explains, "But after writing songs for so long, even unintentionally, you can start to get sort of the same sound happening over and over. We just really didn't want to do that again, and we just wanted something new. I always said you write what you long to play live, and when you play a lot of songs that get kind of similar you don't want to stand up there and play those songs over and over.

"When you have a good variety of stuff, it makes it a lot more fun to listen to and to explore new sounds. It makes it a lot more fun to get up there and play some different stuff." Read more here.
