The legendary Tony Visconti (Bowie, T. Rex) produced the album. The group will also embark on their first full US tour since touring with Morrissey and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists (dates below).

Front-woman Kristeen Young says of working with Patrick, "From the moment I first heard 'Sugar, We're Going Down' I was a goner. Like all heart-stopping moments, I remember my surroundings clearly...Home Depot parking lot, in the band van, and I couldn't wait to hear the song again and again. The voice (that leapt out of the speakers and wrapped itself around my entire circulatory system) not only possessed the obligatory radio-ring, but had depth, flexibility, and made all the melody choices that break your heart while simultaneously making you feel like you can conquer all. When I wrote the duet, I knew that Patrick Stump was the very capable man for the job at hand. The song is about the duality of the human spirit. It's about a battle that a person has with one's self when at the lowest of low times. Lucky me, not only did Patrick's voice caress these oddly rhythmed melody lines better than how I imagined, Patrick, personally, seemed to embody the role. He embraced the song with focus and optimism, and was an actual lift of light to my often heavy (and...YES) depressed soul. I am so fortunate that Patrick loved my song so, and that he had no reservations about expressing it."
