When local artists who actually are special and noteworthy gain wider attention (the Avett Brothers, for example), or when artists who are successful choose to move back to their home state (Lazzara), they're often either dismissed (as sell-outs, I suppose? That's unfortunate, and CL is going to avoid playing that game. They may be too pop-punk for some tastes, or not musically adventurous enough for those who prefer "avant-" attached to their genre of choice.But Lazzara and his family have chosen to live in Charlotte; they get their coffee at Smelly Cat and go see shows at the Neighborhood Theatre.I was curious why, and the answer — at least in Lazzara's mind — is in a comment he made during my interview with him for this week's cover story: "I don't think people in Charlotte like my band all that much." I'm not so sure that's true.I think it's something a bit more complex, something that has as much to do with Charlotte itself as it does with Lazzara or Taking Back Sunday.
The group is wrapping up their Long Island recording session and pre-production with Mike Sapone (Brand New, Straylight Run), who’s been a close comrade of the band since their early days, but for the first time is billed officially as producer for the upcoming record.
We caught up with Lazzara to talk about the logistics of the new album (Hint: They’re “free agents” on this one), the group’s return to the newly renovated Starland Ballroom, and the artists he can’t get enough of right now. We’re recording eight songs with Mark Hudson, who’s a great friend of ours and travels with us, in Michigan.
In early June, the band took to Twitter to share the good news that you’re recording your sixth studio album! Is the recording process for this record any different for you guys? Then we’re doing five songs on Long Island with Mike Sapone, who did our original demos way back when. Maybe in the past there were other outside influences and things steering us in one direction or another. When you get stagnant, like [you might] in a relationship with someone or anything in life, that’s normally when something needs to get shaken up. We spent all these years trying to fit into this world of “you need a hit” and the right “single,” and then I think what we’re realizing is that, when you take that pressure out of the equation, those types of songs just appear.
— to be almost embarrassed of anything smacking of celebrity or mainstream appeal.
Obviously, this underground/mainstream divide is hardly exclusive to Charlotte, but it seems to be a particularly raw topic here.
