Comfort In Sound

Album: Comfort In Sound (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • Grant Nicholas told Kerrang! magazine June 21, 2008 how he wrote this soon after the tragic suicide of their drummer Jon Lee: "That song came very quickly (after Jon Lee's death). The words just came out, to a degree. It's only now, when I look back, that I can see exactly what I was writing about. There are definitely certain lines in that song that sum up exactly what I was going through."
  • This was released as a limited edition single in the UK, only available on the bands tour. All 3,000 copies quickly sold out. As it was only available to those who attended one of the band's gigs on their UK tour it qualified as the first ever download only single to appear on the BBC Radio 1 playlist.
