Sur l'écriture et la production de l'album, le guitariste et chanteur Sergio Pizzorno a commenté: "I felt that we had the confidence to be more direct, more honest with this album. I started to strip away layers rather than to just keep adding."
Tom Meighan, le chanteur explosif du groupe, est encore plus direct: "Less is more, you know? It's direct. It is what it is. Just listen to it. We've had the confidence to lay ourselves bare. Serg has stripped it right back. It's unbelievable."
