Talking about the album, vocalist CJ McMahon commented, “I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt going into a record. Coming back to the fold of our band has reinvigorated me. I missed my brothers, touring, and, of course, all of our dedicated fans around the world who have always given us their all.
This new record is going to shape our future; we gave it everything we could and then some. In the past, I was the weakest link, and now that I have re-built myself, we are stronger than ever and nothing can stand in our way.”
Guitarist Andy Marsh also added, “Hate, War, Desolation; the trilogy series of the path mankind has laid out before himself. We are prouder than ever of our efforts on this record. A lot of time, planning, creativity, and teamwork has culminated in what we think is our most completed vision yet: ‘Dear Desolation’.”
