The new album, Why Anything? Why This? has some trademark Shriekback moments, but the band continues to grow, experiment and develop. It is three albums worth of Shriekback coming back together. We were all more involved with this one than the album before last, says Carl Marsh during our recent conversation. Everyone was involved. We went back to the old days, like getting the family back together. We were all throwing things in all the time. Last year, there was a decision to get back together as a live band, which has resulted in this album which is more of a collaboration.
