Album: Welcome Home Armageddon (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Drummer Ryan Richards discussed this track in a track-by-track interview with Rock Sound magazine: "This is probably the most 'different' song on the record, just for the instrumentation and the vibe, which is a lot more relaxed than the rest of the album. We wanted to write a more mellow song without making it a ballad or too light to play live - and I think we've achieved that. Probably the track that will surprise people most on the album. Throwing a live drum n' bass rhythm into a down tempo track was definitely something we've never done before!"
