Spinning Over The Island

Album: Welcome Home Armageddon (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Matt Davies-Kreye told Noisecreep that this slam dance anthem makes a very poignant statement. "Technology is cool but it's really starting to effect the way people interact with each other in the real world," he said before adding, "LOL, FML," to emphasis his point.
  • Drummer Ryan Richards told Rock Sound magazine regarding this track: "Something else we haven't done in a while is a tracks like 'Escape Artists...', 'Novella' or 'Hospitality' that take you through a whole host of different riffs, sections and moods, bringing you out at the end of a song somewhere completely different from where you started. This is one of my favourite tracks on the record."
