This song was inspired by Nuclear War imagery. Vocalist Barry Hyde explained to Uncut
magazine: "'Fallout' is about a '80s propaganda film called Threads
. Its a hypothetical thing about what would happen if they dropped a nuclear bomb on Sheffield. I went with a group of friends and I came out and we all sat in silence, thinking about the possibility of Armageddon. If it ever happened, how would you make your final moments the best possible? You'd want to be with the right people, the people you absolutely love - but they'd be dead, I suppose, and so would you."
"Its a pretty fu---d up song, I suppose, but I'd rather do that than write, like, This is a song about nuclear war bombs, bombs, bombs. Also, though, it can be read as a song about falling out with someone - splitting up with a girl, for instance, but not losing one another in the process."
