Lead singer and producer Dave Bayley commented on the new single:
…we’ve been buzzing off of the amazing energy of the crowds we’ve been playing to. As crowds grew, they got more feral…and so did we. We found ourselves going wilder on stage, and playing heavier, grittier, high energy versions of our songs, changing them every night. Now we’ve tried to put some of that energy, spontaneity, and sound on tape.
