Jami Morgan told Kerrang! the following about the release:
“I think it’s important to show people different corners of what it is that we do. We didn’t want to do a remix record in the sense of anyone else remixing our stuff – even though there’s a lot of amazing people out there. We wanted it to be a soundtrack to the record. Listening to this can kind of inform that world and the character ideas we were putting down in our art.”
He also added:
“There are a couple of songs on here I think are just awesome songs.’So Below‘, ‘Drowning In It‘ and ‘Club.Cold.Metal‘ are hooky and could exist in different environments than we would normally be allowed to exist in. It’s immersive in the sense that we approach things song by song, but I’m always thinking about the album. It’s very intentional in things like the order, the way things connect, and I think people will be able to see that.
At the same time, we don’t expect people’s full attention span for anything, but we do things purely based on what the void is for things that we like. We take elements of things that we like, and we try to put them together in a way that if we were outside of ourselves would think were really cool.
We really think about every element and when we pump this thing up in the next week or so, people will see that. Being able to paint on that canvas and put a little bit more of that ‘Underneath‘ world out there, you know? That record is all over the place purposefully for the whole time, and this record builds a cityscape around it. I’m sure nobody will give a fuck but it’s fun for me!”
Morgan also revealed that the album will be accompanied by a 13-minute video:
“For me, the story of the album, it’s a Dante’s Inferno-esque thing, in which this mud man is essentially travelling to Hell, to this cold metal place, in hopes of meeting his maker and getting some sense of forgiveness or repentance. As he travels down he’s being taken through memories, nightmares and ideas, he’s being taken through his own mind, he’s being forced to watch things he’s done that aren’t good, he’s being shown amazing moments. Then in the end he does meet that maker and I’ll leave it open-ended as to what happens.”
