Drummer and guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz
recalled the song's genesis to Metal Hammer
: "We all used to just jam in a basement, and I was in there on my own and came up with some drum patterns, then I added some riffs to it."
"By the time the rest of the guys turned up for practice I felt like I had something new to show them, so we just toyed with it! Joel [Stroetzel, guitar] came up with the riff that comes in at the end, but we collectively flushed it out together pretty quickly."
