Smile Empty Soul - 3's (2012)

The built-in fanbase that Smile Empty Soul bring with them is dedicated and the result of musical elbow grease. The band's post-grunge sensibilities, unstoppable work ethic and constant tour schedule, which has seen them performing alongside bands like Breaking Benjamin, Seether, Fuel, Cold and more throughout the years, and sticks-to-your-cranium singles like Bottom of a Bottle earned them a gold-selling album with 2003's self-titled debut. It's the love of the fans and the passion for making music that keeps Danielsen and company on this path. Music is what we do and none of us have any idea what we do if we weren't doing this. Stopping is not an option, giving up is not an option, even if we have to deal with these headaches, the singer said.

3s was recorded in the band's native Southern California, at a handful of studios in the Valley and North Hollywood. Producer Eddie Wohl, who worked with the band on Consciousness, also manned the board on the new album at his Babyland Studios. The level of comfort with Wohl helped make "3's" the consistent, tightly constructed album that it is. He gets us and our sound, Danielsen said. The first single from 3's is Afterlife, a song that is heavy but up-tempo and is representative of the album as whole on both sonic and stylistic levels. The song is generally about getting yourself outta Dodge. I was being tired or frustrated in a situation and having the need to get out of town, Danielsen said, sharing a tiny particle of detail about the song's meaning. Remember, he wants you to decipher things for yourself! Let Go is a another standout and exceptional track on 3s, with Danielsen proclaiming that it's a different sound for us, different than what we've done, and it's a fun song to play. It's about letting go of old ideas or beliefs or whatever, and letting go of the old to allow yourself to be reborn into something new.
