Vocalist Drew York blogs about the fourth track on the band's new album 'Anonymous', out September 16 through Sumerian Records.

"I'm sure a lot of people can relate to this song and what it's about. Have you ever had a close friend start dating someone that you thought wasn't right for them? Well that is what this song is about. It sucks when you're friends with someone and you start to see them change for the worse. They act different, seem different and even look different. When they start disappearing from your life is when you know something is wrong. We've all been in situations like this where one of close friends choose their significant other over their friends. I feel like this happens a lot in life, we knew people could relate to a song like this and it was also something that we wanted to write about. I think this is one of the most unique sounding songs on the record compared to the others.

This track also features Jason Butler from letlive., such a great frontman and friend of ours. It was really cool because he just so happened to be in New York while we were recording vocals. So Jason came in and we worked on the song all day. he killed it. We gave him free reign to do what he wanted and be creative and if you know Jason you know he got right up to the mic making crazy noises on all kinds of different patterns, it was awesome.

To sum it all up I just want to make it known that if you have someone in your life that calls you their friend but is never there for you anymore because they chose a horrible person to be with, use this song as motivation to say something to them. You could be saving someone from being miserable for the rest of their lives. And if they don't hear you out then you did what you could, but at least you tried. Friendship is a huge part of this band, with fans, other bands and people that we work with. I'd say it's one of the most important things to us."
