Vocalist Chris Jerue said this about the upcoming album:
"It took us 20 years to write this record. We had to narrow things down and fine-tune this formula to the four people who wanted it the most. There have been like 14 people in this band. Now it seems like we have the right group to make good music... Since [2009's] Bridges To Burn came out I had a real shitty three years. I can laugh at it now because I lived through it. That's what this whole record is about. I have a whole different viewpoint. I could have died, and I guess I've been seeing things differently. When I listen to Bridges To Burn now, I bore myself. But this record gets crazy without getting in your face with the negativity. I mean, it's just as pissed but not as pissed at the same time."
