Vocalist/guitarist Don Coyle had this to say about the new album:
“With the new album, we focused on writing tight, hooky metal songs, there are some really fast, super heavy, groovy songs – some of the catchiest, most melodic songs we’ve ever written. We wanted a modern, but organic-sounding album that was tight but still captured the intensity of the band. The album sounds huge! The title of the album says it all — it’s about finding your way when you’re lost. The lyrics come from a very personal, very real place. The recurring lyrical theme is about the everyday struggles of life and what it takes to persevere and follow your dreams.”
