The Song[edit]

When asked about the track, Aled Philips (Vocals) explains:
The song ‘Matters At All’ is about making things happen. It plays on the idea of having your time and making the most of it. A lot of the songs on the new album are about just playing what you're dealt and making the most of a good or bad situation.’ He continues; ‘With the speed that things move nowadays and people's short attention span, I was always weary of us staying relevant and doing something better than we did before, and curious as to whether people would stick by us. It's an age old theme that I guess every band goes through at some point. Except for AC/DC. They can just keep doing their thing...
