Frontman Jay Buchanan had this to say about the song, "Sometimes environment really shapes a song. Hunkered down in a threadbare shack deep in the south Tennessee woods, Scott Holiday and I sweated it out and just wrote for a week straight.
"We were set out on an old causeway surrounded by neglected reservoirs and overgrown with sh*t you don't want to see and yes; infested with all manner snakes. The song is a whiskey nightmare crawling with copperheads to me."

At The Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg had this to say, "At The Gates have not done a support tour since 1996. When we got invited to this tour, we immediately saw the logic to the package.
"This is three bands with their own unique sound, three bands totally dedicated to finding the core of their art. Three important bands. It all made sense to us, and we are flattered to be part of this. I truly believe that this is THE ONE tour not to miss this year. Get ready to drink from the night itself together with us." See the dateshere.
This whole record was pretty improvisational - from recording together in the studio to laying down overdubs and mixing. This song came together lyrically right before we recorded it; the words were all there, they just hadn't settled into a flow. So this was the first take. Both Jon Neufeld and I like working that way - Jon's so great as a musician and a producer in that regard - there is this vulnerability in the not knowing but so much possibility there too.
I am curious to see how the songs land for other people; to me this album is a collection of human stories told by rivers, these different musical currents and narratives flowing through the songs and throughout the record. It continues to be a process of discovery. I am really looking forward to touring with Jon and playing the songs live.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album
