    Shudall noted to The Independent that it's not always easy for bands to suddenly just step up and "be political". "People are scared of saying something wrong," he said. "I was always fearful of saying anything because I don't know much about politics. But now I'm kind of like, just because I don't follow it too closely doesn't mean I don't care about things. That's why I wrote the song 'Different Creatures' on Syrian refugees."
