Criminals

Album: Attics to Eden (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Nathan Leone told Kerrang! April 4, 2009 about this song: "As a band you get attention, and when you do, people come out of the woodwork to criticise you. When we started this band, we didn't think about the negative-you go out there to do something positive and affect people in a positive way- but it seems there are always little arrows that try and attack you." Leone added that this song, "is about seeking revenge on the people that pick on you."
