They haven't gone much more than 2 years between their other albums. It may seem quick because they had to put the DoD tour on hold while Gus toured with Ozzy for a year. It would be silly to not put something out now as it seems that the band is picking up momentum. They need to capitalize on that. As long as they don't compromise the music, it will be fine. Bob, Gus and Apollo are great songwriters. They will kick ass.
