Discussing single ‘The Seeker’ the band stated:
“This one we feel represents the album very well and carries on from where we left off with Divided.”
About the album, the band revealed:
“We’re really stoked, we can’t wait to share this with everybody! It’s not a concept album, but each song has its own individual story, they compliment each other. It’s got the dark thing going, but optimism too.
It’s more progressive than anything on Divided. A lot of the prog moments on this album are really over the top; we all come from prog backgrounds.”
