Album: That's the Spirit (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Musically, this was inspired by the sort of '90s dance music recorded by artists such as Faithless and even Snap!

    Vocalist Oli Sykes told Kerrang: "We wanted to start with a huge euphoric build that really got the hairs on the back of your neck standing up. We wanted to explore, are more tribal sounding drums, and we were inspired by artists like Active Child to make melodies out of pitched vocal samples – the intro is just Jordan (Fish, keyboards) and I yelling, 'We let anything go.'"
