About the album

We wrote and recorded the whole album in 10 days minus the vocals. We had some time off to write lyrics, then recorded all the vocals with our producer Matt, who then mixed the whole thing straight after the last vocal session. That’s how we used to operate with The Fall, so we like it that way and feel like you capture something raw with good energy.
