Forgive and Forget

Album: Cavalier Youth (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Josh Franceschi explained to Kerrang! magazine: "For me, burying the hatchet with people after there's been an issue has been something that I found difficult, and this song addresses that."
  • Rather than having an upbeat chorus the band slowed it down, made Chris Miller's guitar part very simple, and let the groove and the drums carry the chorus. Franceschi told Kerrang! that it's, "a sound we've never really created before."
