Comments by John Darnielle About this Album[]

  • Liner notes:
    • "Reading down the tracklist I would say that if you're looking for a governing theme here, it's calamity, as all the songs are either anticipating one or reflecting one that's already happened. You can tell your own fortune by declaring an allegiance on either side of that line."
    • "I don't usually dedicate albums to anybody, but this one's kinda special to me so I want to dedicate it to Matt and Shani with endless gratitude for bringing these tunes to life."
