Play Video


  • This was released as the first single from of Mice And Men's third album Restoring Force. The album title is a reference to Of Mice and Men's previous LP, The Flood. Said vocalist Austin Carlile: "What happens after a disaster? What happens after 'The Flood'? You return to normal. You find balance again. That's what we felt like we were doing with this album. We wanted this record to bring equilibrium back to our band and music. We're letting everyone know what we're here to stay. We're 'Restoring Force.'"
  • Asked by what happened guitar-wise on this song, Phil Manansala replied: "I think we used a Naylor head and an ESP reverse headstock so it's a Baritone jumbo 7-string [LTD SC-607B]. And we also used the Baritone Les Paul because the Baritone sounds so tight and it just sounds bigger I feel like. That tone on that song sounds huge. That song just sounds massive. Four-on-the-floor the whole time too. That sounds like a rock and roll song."
