Flashbulb Fires on the new album and adjusting to life as a three-piece without a bassist

Flashbulb Fires (due this Saturday, May 12, at the hi-dive, with Princess Music and Shirley) has endured some changes and been rather active in the past year. Now a trio -- the act parted ways with its bassist last summer and opted not to replace him -- the act split its time between touring and recording a new album, Gasconader. We recently spoke with the guys -- Patrick McGuire, Michael James and Chris Sturniolo -- about the new album and adjusting to being a three-piece.
