Speaking of the album, Bailey elaborated a bit on its overarching themes and how the band chose to represent them.
“The new album Shame continues the band’s themes of mental health and philosophy. As with the last album it’s a a technical rollercoaster representing the chaos and the complexities of human life. The lyrics are sometimes abstract but deal with confusion, confirmation bias, illogical thinking. It’s not a particularly fun concept but it’s an honest one.
“All the themes here are complex and heavy and will never be useless when we superimpose them onto our own lives. The complexities are matched with the music and the intensity of the music is matched with the intensity of how I feel about the world and my place in it today. Sometimes I feel absolutely nothing whatsoever and sometimes I feel a burning for a better understanding of myself. Mood swings eh!!!”
