Franceschi told AntiMusic
this was a particularly difficult song to wrap up. "Max our guitarist had the verse riff idea for around a year until we eventually went to a practice space to begin writing the record," he explained. "'Cold Night' from the moment we began writing it as a band was a headache, the problem child of the record."
"We had a first idea that we absolutely loved but could not write a chorus we felt did it justice," Franceschi continued. "Fast forward six months to when we began pre production in Los Angeles and we still don't really have a chorus. It was slowly but surely becoming a song we were going to shelf and move on from."
"And then, as he often did throughout the duration of making the record, Neal Avron our producer, suggested we take all the big rock driven chords out of the chorus and make it more 'spacey' and more room for the track to be driven purely by the vocal and the drums," he added. "We'd never done anything like that, so at first it was difficult to accept this sound as a youmeatsix sound, but I think this method and way of thinking ultimately set a new precedent for the record as a whole, we would try anything and everything on every song, regardless if it initially sounded like 'us' or not. It was pretty liberating, and moving forward definitely helped shaped this record."
