Songwriter Matt Harvey had this to say about the track: “The guys and I only knew Carlos briefly, but it was a privilege getting to make some noise with him. We wanted to give him a proper send-off and we can only hope he would have dug the song. It’s obviously heavy subject matter, and we hope the respect we tried to convey in the tune comes through.”
