Frontman Buddy Nielson commented:
Nielsen, guitarist Matt Smith, guitarist Zack Roach and drummer Dan Trapp began writing the album in February.
Over the last 10+ years our influences have grown, and the creative well from which we draw has been dug deeper. This record stands to show where we are in our personal and creative lives. We've always counted on this band to be our rock and positive tool of expression through our highs and lows. Never has that been more clear than with this batch of songs.
