Last year when they retreated to the Pocono Mountains to start writing “Hot Mess,” almost all of the electronic tracks they emerged with ended up being the final cut for the record.“When we got to the studio, all the electronic stuff was kept from the mountains.We just had to re-track drums and vocals – that’s about it,” Suarez said.For “The World Will Never Do,” the band also teamed up with a then somewhat-unknown rapper – B.o.B , who has since blown up on both i Tunes and Billboard charts.“We had the song written and were thinking we should have someone put a rap down.
