Album: Children Of Fire (2011)
  • This is the first single from Texas metal band Oh, Sleeper's third album, Children Of Fire. It was released on August 2, 2011.
  • The track was the last to be written and first to be recorded for Children Of Fire. Guitarist Shane Blay told the story of the song to Alternative Press magazine: "Typically, I will write and record a song on my Pro Tools setup at home, then send it to Micah [Kinard, vocalist] and he writes his parts over it. Our drummer Zac [Mayfield] and I had this 32-note kick pattern we messed with and I wrote the rest of it around that idea. We recorded the entire record in track order. None of us had heard Micah's ideas for the vocals until he stepped behind the mic to record them. We were blown away with what he was doing. I wrote and recorded the [vocal] melodies the same day, and voila!"
