Songfacts®:

  • This dirge-like song was first released in November 2017 as part of a 7-inch red vinyl single for Record Store Day's Black Friday. "'Phantom Limb' is a tale of seek and find," said singer Troy Sanders. "The song explores a cause of sensation and is inspired by one's ability to overcome what was once there."
  • A music video for the song was released in April 2018. The clip was directed and edited by Bryan Bankovich and produced by Meredith Kooi. Sanders said: "We shot this in one beautiful day amongst the ruins of Fort Dade on the isolated island of Egmont Key in the Gulf of Mexico. It was filmed with our good friends at Newmerica, which was once again a most pleasurable experience."
