Speaking on the meaning behind 'Westwood Road', Andy shared with us "‘Westwood Road’ is about being so fucking miserable while sitting in a hotel room and absolutely hating where I am now. It’s thinking ‘this doesn’t represent me at all, this is not who I am’ and thinking of going back to being a kid and enjoying going to football games with my dad and all that sort of stuff. Now as an adult I actually do all that stuff".

Speaking about the tie between his graphic novel and the album, Andy shared with Rock Sound "In many ways the comic book is a more stylised and heightened version of these stories, because it has to be. When I went to the company who is printing [the novel] I asked them if they could help me shape all of this into a way where it would make sense. I have written concept albums before, but this is my first time putting together a graphic novel. Then the record went from there."
