"This is our punk record. We made it in Oakland, quickly. We drank and smoked. Then we made the loud parts louder. I hurt my voice screaming. This was back in 2018, when things were bad in the world. The songs are naked with nothing to hide." - mit diesen Worten meldet sich Ezra Furman zurück. "The record is political," erklärt Furman, "but it offers an emotional reaction rather than being specific or partisan." "One of my goals in making music is to make the world seem bigger, and life seem larger," fügt er hinzu. "I want to be a force that tries to revive the human spirit rather than crush it, to open possibilities rather than close them down. Sometimes a passionate negativity is the best way to do that."
