About five years ago, the band Water Liars set up at Echo Lab studios in Argyle, Texas to record a set of tracks that would become the band's fourth album. Although the band has been on a bit of a hiatus in the intervening years, the album Roll On was released in early July. We speak with the band's Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster to learn more about the album and why it has finally been released.
