Auerbach spoke to Billboard and revealed that the band are already “almost done with another record. It’s really close.”

The singer said that touring with the band has helped them grow: “The Arcs have a particular sound, or we’re trying to. It’s starting to, I guess, solidify a little bit, especially the more we play live together,” he said. “I’m just hearing a new consistency, but it’s still pulling from various types of places; it’s what our record collections sound like, pretty much, so it’s all over the place. There’s loud songs, fast songs but it’s still dreamy and it still sounds like the Arcs. I don’t really know how to describe it.”
