"Your Love Is a Lie" was produced by Dave Fortman (Evanescence, Mudvayne). The band chose Fortman to help achieve the sonic fusion Simple Plan envisioned as it recorded the album in Los Angeles and Montreal. Frontman Pierre Bouvier
commented on the band's MySpace site: "He was the one who actually felt the most excited about the record and making this different kind of hybrid. It was important for us to have a rock producer that could really capture the way we sound live but that could also, at the same time, embrace this new direction."
