DeLeo told Noisecreep that groove he plays came from a long sought-after instrument. "I just bought and found a rare bass that I had been looking for for years. I got a chance to use it on that song, so that meant a lot too. To do that from a gear geek kind of perspective," he said.
DeLeo added: "I've been looking for this certain Rickenbacker 4001 Bass. That's a very rare 1971 Rickenbacker Bass. There were only 20 of those made in '71. It's very rare and very collectible. Growing up on Paul McCartney and Chris Squire
from Yes, Geddy Lee. You dream of instruments of that. Then when you find one, it's like, 'Well this is going on the song.' That means a lot, man. Dreaming about those instruments as a little kid and actually having one and using it on a song that you put together. It means a lot."
