May 23, 2019: In an interview with RIFF Magazine, Max talked about the influence that the death of Dave’s dad in 2018 will have on the next Gang of Youths album:
“I know that our record that we’re about to start making will definitely be touched by what happened with his father. I think that will be a lot of the bigger issues. But it’s never small with David.”
