Background information[edit]

Band frontman Guy Kozowyk had the following to say:

Inspired by events where my brother, who is a prison guard, walks in on an inmate doing something ridiculous in his cell. The prisoner won’t talk and gets into this dialogue via a notepad. After documenting that he can no longer talk because the devil removed his tongue, my brother checks the con's mouth with his flashlight. When he tells him that his tongue is definitely intact, the inmate replies with the cryptic message "Pray for Eyes".[citation needed]

The album debuted at #198 on the Billboard 200 with sales of about 4,000 - 5,000 copies and at #3 on the Heatseekers Chart.
