This is the first single from Scurrilous
, the third studio album by Canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero. The album cover is a 60-year-old painting by bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi's grandfather, Jafar Petgar, titled Scurrilous
. The painting was inspired by an argument between Petgar and his wife that stemmed from "conjecture and scurrilous lies" being spread by a neighbor. The picture is meant to represent the world fleeing from the lies originating from the human tongue. Mirabdolbaghi told Noisecreep
the piece was selected as the cover art because they, "thought the wide and varied use of color in the piece reflected the contrasting sonic landscapes of the music on the album."
