The song “The Santa Margarita” sets the tone of the record with a massive sound and hook-filled choruses. The track features popular singer-songwriter Dave Hause, who lends his vocals to the song, which was written as a tribute to fallen friend Tony Sly.

“I wrote the lyrics to “The Santa Margarita” after I’d gotten the news that our friend Tony Sly had died,” says vocalist/guitarist Donald Spence. “He’d taken us on a few tours early in our band’s life and I really didn’t know how to process the information. I’ve know people that have died… but this really hurt my heart in a different way. I think that’s because in addition to being a good friend I still really look up to him in many ways. I asked my friend Dave Hause to come in and sing on the chorus with me and we had a blast. He’s such fun person to have around. He ended up hanging in the studio with us for a while and singing on a few tracks. We’re really proud of these songs. I think it’s the strongest record we’ve made so far; a truly collective effort. I can’t wait to play these songs live.”
