Holy Frontman

Album: Pedestrian Verse (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This track was inspired by a period of vocalist Scott Hutchison's life in 2011 when he "wasn't exactly acting like a pillar of society," a period which "was far more destructive than creative." He told The Skinny magazine that he believes "that this behaviour, although selfish and thoughtless, can be essential. It is a non-religious baptism of sorts. Ruin everything and start again. Here we have the belligerent protagonist telling his concerned friends to go f--k themselves."
