Talk to NME Of the album, singer Chuck Ragan said, “We’re all incredibly proud of it, the songs are some of our favorites and quite simply, it’s hands down the best record Hot Water Music has ever made. We are delighted with it.
Then when asked if the band would be on tour to support him, Ragan confirmed that they would, but that he and his band mates wouldn’t make the grueling commitments they once made.
He said about it: “It’s a lot more fun playing live since we got back together. We don’t dig into the ground like we used to. We’re going to go out and support the record, but we don’t think we have to kill ourselves doing it. We have nothing to prove, we go to concerts when we want to.
