Speaking of the single, the group comments:

“This was the last song we completed for the album and it summed up the themes of the entire project so cohesively, that we decided to re-title the album to Culture of Violence, base the artwork around the song, make it the first track on the album and film a video as the final single to launch the same day as the album’s release.

The title track from the record, much like the video, is no frills, in your face and makes no apologies musically, lyrically or conceptually. The entire world answers to one determinant factor and that’s violence; both physical and mental.”

On the album itself, the band stated:

Culture of Violence is the album we’ve been in the process of creating since 2015. This is the record where we can firmly say with confidence, ‘This is what XAD is all about!’ The recording and releasing process has always been behind our songwriting by a few years, so the previous material was outdated to us before we even went in to record it. On this album, we moulded ideas for years as well as the fact that we never stopped writing, so everything is fresh and capturing us in this moment. Musically, lyrically, thematically and visually, this record is a heavy experience and a savage interpretation of what we’ve all witnessed and experienced over the past few years.”
