Motion City Soundtrack is taking a look back before they take a look forward with their fifth as-yet-untitled full-length studio album, which they recently recorded.  Co-produced in their hometown of Minneapolis MN with producer Ed Ackerson at his Flowers Studio, the band took an organic approach to writing and recording the fifth record – from trading emails of song ideas, to locking themselves up in a rehearsal space woodshedding, to ultimately letting the ideas take shape and develop in the studio, song by song.  The band is aiming for a Spring 2012 release with more details to come later.
