“The ‘Exile‘ recording session left us with a number of extra songs, which is not very common for us. Usually we narrow the funnel before we commit to recording—in order to keep things focused and as speedy as possible.

For this record, there were a number of songs that we really wanted to include, but it really came down to what fit—not just time-wise, but also thematically.

The Brink‘ is definitely a different one for us, but I absolutely love how it came out. We discussed doing this one as a piano ballad or stripped-down acoustic number, but I demoed it as an 80s-esque electronic tune, and we were really loving that vibe too much to mess with it.

There is a feeling of anxiety in the main key pattern, which is deliberate. We wanted it to feel like that moment in a movie when things start to intensify and you’re not sure how it’s going to shake out. I think the score to Interstellar was a big inspiration for this song in general. If you’re familiar with that score, you may hear it.”

This April will find the alternative metal outfit hitting the road for a 20th anniversary tour with Opponent opening.
