Clint Lowery: “Musically, it’s straight-up Sevendust. We left some holes for the vocals to do their thing in the verses. The song is us poking fun at society in that nobody wants to hear the truth; they love propaganda and filters, hype and sugar-coated realities. People would rather hear a mass lie than what’s really going on. We can all be guilty of that from time to time.
“We start out with this menacing, palm-muted part that matches up with the drums. In the verse, there are these really cool, punchy guitar riffs, and in the chorus there’s an off-time thing that gets very open and grand. It’s epic, man. In that chorus, there’s a percussive, harmonic riff for one layer, and then there’s another part that’s more of a strum – that one carries the melody.
“I like mixing those kinds of guitar parts, the percussive and the melodic bits. They give your ears a lot to dive into, and they create this nice bed for the vocals.”
