Behind the Devil's Back

Album: Behind the Devil's Back (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The Behind the Devil's Back title was suggested by bass guitarist Dan Haigh's father. Haigh explained to HMV.com: "Basically there's a line in the book (The Bible) which is 'Behind God's Back', which is to do something a little bit questionable and then one of us, I think it was him, suggested flipping it. It's being in a negative environment and doing something positive. Pushing against the darkness."
