When we hear the term Mach 1 it is easy to assume it is the speed of sound through Earth’s atmosphere. This is the loud, cracking sound that is associated with the shock waves that are created by an object traveling faster than the local speed of sound.
I can’t tell you how proud I am about this group of songs. As you know, we took our time and that benefited us taking more changes. ‘Dance’ was a perfect storm of experimentation and real collaboration, mixing up the instrumentation and building a great song, and Ed writing some of my favorite words yet, around Matt’s killer drum pattern. Did I mention Mike’s insane guitar part and that Stone is playing bass on this one? We’ve opened some new doors creatively and that’s exciting.Jeff Ament
