The band stated of the albums concept; ‘This album cover extends an ominous invitation into the retro-futurist dystopian setting of The Astonishing.

The deceptively beautiful yet chillingly totalitarian image is a bold harbinger of the visual components and ideas presented by the sonic story that is our most ambitious creative work to date’.
