The record's debut track, "Empire" is best described by vocalist/keyboardist Ben Thornwell as: "...an extended metaphor of the heart as a castle, A keep is defined as 'The Stronghold of a Castle' thus, 'My heart, is my keep and you are threatening me.' And the truth is that an empire, as is love, is hard to keep peaceful."

Since their 2008 debut, Let Live and Let Ghosts, which SPIN called, "a refreshing reminder that the lighthearted electricity of a fantastic pop song is still filled with live wires," the band has kept themselves busy.

After playing over 300 shows with the likes of Ben Folds, Adam Green and Ra Ra Riot, the band, which is made up of vocalist/pianist Ben Thornewill, vocalist/guitarist Tommy Siegel and drummer Jesse Kristin spent countless hours constructing and arranging songs until they reached their full potential.
