The album was recorded at the band’s Miami studio, Pinecrust, with bass player Jonathan Nuñez overseeing production and Converge’s Kurt Ballou once again returning to handle mixing.  In discussing the band’s approach to writing and recording Restarter, Nuñez shared his thoughts on the band’s musical evolution: “I feel that with time you kind of expand and hopefully progress.  Hopefully this record is a good reflection of that. I feel it’s strong sonically and harder hitting than the previous record [Harmonicraft].  I’m happy with the last record, but I feel on this record, it’s just more solid song to song.  You’ve got to move forward.  You can’t release the same record over and over.”

The band has also announced a Spring 2015 European tour.
