"One of the themes for our album is the importance of men’s mental health. Collectively we, like many, have experienced first hand the impact self-doubt, depression, addiction and tragedy can have on mental wellbeing. Every song on the album tells a story and we hope that the same strength can be drawn from our music as we have gained producing it. We have worked closely throughout the album with our mix and master engineer, Justin Paul Hill to reach our desired final sound. Without his industry knowledge we wouldn’t be where we are today."
