Jason Walton (Agalloch, Sculptured, Snares of Sixes), who handles productions, instruments, and synth for the duo, comments:

“Amidst the pandemic and the blatant, horrific displays of systemic racism in America, I was feeling helpless and despondent. I had been working on a few albums but wanted to do something different. I was experimenting with guitars, synths, and various electronics in a way I hadn’t really done before. Upon wrapping up this first track, the news of the killing of Seattle protester Summer Taylor reached me and impacted me greatly. I then revisited this track and made it angrier, more visceral and at that point knew I wanted to ask Joy Von Spain to collaborate with me on this.”

Vocalist/Lyricist for the project Joy Von Spain (Eye of Nix, To End It All) adds:

“The spirit-laden environment created by Jason in this piece illustrated to me both sorrow and despair, inspiring these lyrics in memory of those who’ve lost their lives in the ongoing battle for racial justice and equal rights. While compelled to sing a lament for those killed and injured, this moment called also for rage at the perpetrators of these horrific acts who typically experience little or no personal repercussions. While we tread a treacherous path throughout the piece, in the resolution of the song we can find a moment of solemn meditation.”
