Album: Feed The Machine (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Speaking with iHeart radio, frontman Chad Kroeger called this "probably one of the hardest and heaviest songs we've ever put out." He explained:

    "It is quite heavy; there's a lot of screaming that goes on in that chorus. I think we've all tasted a little betrayal in our days and it is not a flavor that I think any of us liked to swallow."
  • "The Betrayal (Act III)" is the eighth track on Feed the Machine. The album concludes with an instrumental "The Betrayal (Act I)."
