The album has now shifted 2.3 million copies in the United States, meaning the pressure is surely on for its follow-up, due this summer via Epic.
"Everybody knows there's expectations. They're not just a band going in for the first time to make a record," producer Mike Flynn tells Billboard. "To me, as a producer, I don't like to put that card out on the table but I will use it to help push them, like, 'people are counting on you now. You can't just turn something in.'"
"It helps my cause too, because I can be like, 'Hey, it's not great. Keep going! Re-write this. Do it faster,'" Flynn says. "Bands seem to be a little bit more willing the second time to try something. They can always go back to the way they did it before."
