Asked how the new effort compares to 2011’s “Dead Throne”, vocalist Mike Hranica told Music Feeds: “I think it’s kind of a totally new animal. It definitely is a very cohesive record. A lot of the times, I feel like we’ll write songs and a lot of them are really cool songs and they’ll all have kind of a theme, but sometimes they stray from that path of the theme that we originally intended. And I think that this album as a whole, it all sounds like the album, it all is a cohesive idea. Which, don’t get me wrong — I don’t mean to say that all the songs sound the same, because they definitely, each has their own unique personality. But as far as ‘Dead Throne’, our progression from ‘Dead Throne’, I definitely do think that this album is just a more mature record and has a lot more thought put into it. As always — we’re always gonna put a little bit more effort and thought into the new record than our previous effort.”

Back in January, Hranica told Loudwire about the songwriting process for the new album: “For me, I definitely feel a little bit of a carry-over from ‘Dead Throne’, particularly because it was a very cool record for me learning, for me learning to write better and that was working with a new [producer] … working with Adam for the first time and having [A DAY TO REMEMBER‘s] Jeremy McKinnon working on some of the songs with us, and I feel I took a lot from that. On ‘Dead Throne’, there were better vocal parts and everything was more cohesive and understandable and made for better song structure and everything and that had had a big impact on me creatively and so it’s definitely carried over into this.”

He added: “Conceptually, the concepts of ‘Dead Throne’ didn’t carry over. I feel like that would be repetitive and monotonous to keep going at the same subject matter, but obviously, it all comes from the same place and I can say that nothing got more happy or uplifting, really. So I think it’s very much THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, but also it’s got a bit of freshness and originality to it and I think that even musically we started approaching the songs differently. Like, this song could be more like this and working off of a base we never really worked off of before.”
