After finishing their schedule on the 2001SnoCore Tour, the band planned on returning to the same basement where they recorded their first album, to begin a work on a sophomore effort.
Lead guitarist and vocalist Morgan Lander noted how the band members were only 14 years old when writing their debut album and that "We haven’t written in 4 or 5 years." She acknowledged a change in influence from their early days, stating, "Then we listened to bands like Nirvana, Silverchair, and Alice in Chains. Now we listen to stuff like Cannibal Corpse and Nile." However, the band would continue to write in the same fashion by first composing the music and then using that "as the backdrop behind the vocals."
