Sure, it comes on a Tuesday rather than the usual Friday release day, but maybe that's for the best, allowing listeners to spend time with the record, of which most of the nine tracks were written as a way to cope with disappointment and the struggle of sobriety.
According to the band, lead vocalist Patrick Gillett had fallen into a deep depression and life-threatening substance abuse. His bandmates literally had to break into his apartment and find him unresponsive and needing emergency care.
The newly released album draws inspiration from those experiences, offering a sound that is at times alt-radio friendly and other times heavily leaning on R&B and trap inflections, making it difficult to pigeonhole the record into just one genre.
