Guitarist/vocalist/synth player Tanner Crace said of the new track:

‘Distraction Party’ is one of our favorite songs to play live as it’s a little more up-tempo and different than our other songs. It was one of those songs that just came together so fast and everything kind of locked into place within a few hours! Lyrically it ties into some of the other themes on the album, about an internal struggle with oneself. The absurd struggle with getting older and still maintaining a twenty-year-old’s party lifestyle verses challenging your energy towards more productive efforts. It’s a daily balancing act to stay sane in this world.”

Drummer/vocalist Shane Ocell adds:

“In many ways as I feel like we stepped out of ‘our norm’ for a bit on this track, then it pummels and has feeling. The intro builds then twists and turns you along the way telling the story. The ending to me is like a heart beating towards the end of life (bass drum/feedback/bass) then it wakes up and gives you another chance.”
