|Elvis Perkins chronology|
Upon release, Perkins stated that he did not wish to record another album like its predecessor:
I'd no interest in making Ash Wednesday II. After the dust had settled I was weary, worn and confused about what had happened, especially that people thought it was so personal. I had a talk with myself as to how I might deal with things second time around. Part of this involved making a band record removed from self and giving three other dudes a say. It's a broader vision.
