"Harsh Truth" finds Employed To Serve tackling the topic of depression. Frontwoman Justine Jones told Kerrang:
"It's about the façade of social media and how people only show you 10% of their lives, and it's usually the positive side, whereas underneath they're struggling. And instead of sorting out problems, they're internalizing everything and generally becoming miserable, but everyone's ignoring the fact that that's the case."
The song's music video has a very strong anti-suicide message. Jones said: "I think in British culture everyone's very polite and goes, 'I'm great, thanks,' rather than burdening others with their worries. That's unhealthy."
Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
