Songfacts®:

  • Cancer Bats frontman Liam Cormier (from Terrorizer magazine): "'New World Alliance' is probably our most black metal song we've ever written, so it's fitting that I wanted to make it proper evil [laughs]. But the whole idea with 'New World Alliance' is a rethinking of rules and laws, a bit of an extension on the no gods, no masters idea. For lots of us involved in metal and hardcore or in punk rock it's like, we don't fit in to the normal ideas, especially where a lot of us aren't involved in religion in any way. So it's looking at, well if we're not involved in this then why are we involved in Christian laws, I shouldn't even say that specifically, but just like a rethinking of everything, so that was that idea, that there's a bigger group of us that all have this mindset, that are all thinking progressively. Rethinking our way in the world."
