What’s this song about and what was the inspiration?
“This song took me a few months to write. It came parts at a time but sonically and lyrically the song has very different meanings. At the time there was a lot of tension and negativity in the band.

Where was it recorded and who was it produced by?
“It was recorded at a few places. All around the Boston area. At Emerson College, Barefoot Studios in Brighton, and I think some at our producer’s house Ben Coflan. He was great to work with. Hopefully we can keep working together. “
Where does this song fit in your live act?
“It’s usually closer to the end of the set. We don’t use set lists so sometimes we open with it or close with it but usually it’s the second to last song.”
