Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley told Alternative Press
about the song, "I wrote what would eventually become the lyrics to 'Glitches' after the terrorist attack in Paris
when it was revealed to me just how mentally unprepared I was to deal with tragedy of that caliber. All of my training in Transcendental Meditation went out the window. [I] was scared and uncertain and angry. The system of peace and patience I thought I had established disappeared and what remained was my old ugly self. I learned quickly that nothing can prepare you for an anomaly. For a glitch."
