In the midst of this storm, Connolly and Co. speak up like never before. “This album allowed me to say all of the things that were on my mind earlier, but I was too afraid to say,” the frontman admits. “This album is about what’s going on in the world, the state of American politics, and everything else. It was a completely different way of writing for us."
“What makes this record important is the content,” Brenner elaborates. “Tyler approaches some really tough topics like domestic violence and racism. There are real discussions happening in the tracks backed by heavy stuff to make you think.”
“We just want to write what speaks to us,” Connolly leaves off. “The best thing is when people sing lyrics back to you, or if a song gets somebody through a tough time. There’s something we all might be able to dig here.”
