Bruce explained the album title to Artist Direct
: "The title is something that we felt summed up the whole album and our two years of touring so far. It has been 'Reckless and Relentless.' We haven't stopped touring since before the first album came out. We went on tour about a month before the first album came out and we haven't stopped since then. We took a break to go into the studio and had a week off for Christmas and that's it. It's constant touring. After we named the album, Children of Bodom came out with a record called The Reckless Relentless
, and I was like, 'That f--king sucks!' [Laughs] We weren't going to change it though because we felt like it was the perfect name for this album, and it tells the story we wanted to tell."
