Singled Out: To Speak Of Wolves' Darkness Often Yields the Brightest Light
Our bass player Will McCutcheon actually came up with the opening riff. We were in the studio and needed another song to complete the record. Will showed us that riff and we really dug it. Corey Doran and Aaron Kisling had a few riffs they had been toying around with and it all pretty much came together in one afternoon at the studio. The chorus was the last part of the song to be written guitar wise. We wanted something we could sing over and tried a few different riffs until we came up with the final version.
Once we laid the scratch guitar tracks down, I wanted to start the song with drums, since only one other song on the record starts that way. We tapped out a crazy beat on the computer desk while playing along to the scratch track and then I went in and laid down all the drum parts. We also built the second verse around the drum beat I wanted to use there.
The lyrics Rick Jacobs had been working on for a while and the vocal pattern for the chorus came together with help from our producer Brooks Paschal.
We were super stoked on the way the song came together. It was fun to write the last song for the record in the studio. Everyone put in something to the song and we had a great time doing it.
