Songfacts®:

  • According to guitarist Chad Thomas, the band penned this song in 15 minutes.
  • The video was shot in London during the summer of 2011. Thomas told Spinner they "liked the vibrancy and simplicity of people being able to observe us in a circle, which is how we set up to rehearse. No tricks, that's how we do it. Just the five of us and our instruments in a room, that's where all the songs are born."
