On Friday, July 18, 2014 the band announced the title and album art of their fourth studio album, No Sound Without Silence, via a live Google chat. They also announced the title of the lead single, "Superheroes", due for release on July 31, 2014. The album has been described by O'Donoghue as a prequel to their debut album, with many of the songs being recorded on the road, after playing to sold out arenas. On the recording process, Danny O’Donoghue stated, “We’d come off stage and start recording straight away in a studio bus. Everything’s massive, everything’s larger than life on stage so when we hit the studio we wanted it to have that same impact." The album will be released on September 15, 2014.
