Upon release, drummer Sam Nadel stated that the album:
feels fresh – even a year after finishing it. Sometimes you lose that excitement for your own work within a few days! In a way we’ve regressed, but purposely, so in that we tried to capture the essence of what we are as band. We weren’t going for a “big production” this time around: we used less instruments and were stricter on ourselves, on which ideas made the final cut.
