The band wrote the second half of Dead Throne in the city of Chicago - hence this song's title. Frontman Mike Hrancia told Alternative Press: "I'm excited, because I like a lot of post-hardcore bands and that's kind of what Chicago is for Prada. It's the love/loss theme. It's always going to hit me in a very particular place emotionally. It's something very memorable to me and reminds me of a specific time in my life."
Hrancia told Artist Direct: "It's a depressing, mellow guitar song until it really kicks in. There's a wavering gloomy feel. That's something we haven't really done before."
Guitarist Chris Rubey told the story of the song to Alternative Press: "Whenever we get into band practice, we don't sit down and jam metal, we sit down and turn on our delay pedals and put on the clean channel. 'Chicago' was a song that was all of us sitting there. We played it exactly like that on the first take, and then we were like, 'Go back and do exactly what you did again. Just try to refine your parts and remember what you did." Mike put his vocals on it and made it into what it is. It kind of defines a new sound that we possibly could explore in the future. I really like that song."
