But Whibley is adamant he is not exorcising the demons of his divorce from the "Sk8er Boi" star following their break-up last year after three years of marriage. He tells Kerrang! magazine, "It's not a break-up record. The record's not about her, and it's not about the whole break-up. It's just us being as loud as we can be, screaming about how we don't give a f**k about anything else other than ourselves."
