Hoobastank's 5th studio album, Fight Or Flight, came out on September 11, 2012. The band toured extensively in support of it, traveling around the world into late through early 2016. Between touring, the band starting writing and demoing songs in early 2014. By 2015, they had more song ideas than they'd ever had for a previous album. Of the 30 or so songs they were working on, singer Doug Robb mentioned two working titles: "Way Of The World" and "Chaos."
It wasn't until October and November 2016 that Hoobastank began officially recording the new album. They joined producer Matt Wallace, and were officially finished recording in January 2017. They later did some last-minute studio time in March and April. The new album is expected out very soon. This fall, we should have album #6 in our hands.
