Previously in an interview with Billboard.com, the band's frontman Travis McCoy said that the new album will have a movie aesthetic instead of features. "I can't speak for everyone but I hate seeing lots of features on an album, So, instead we're having a movie aesthetic, where everyone is going to be part of the cast as opposed to being featured. You won't know who is on the album just by looking at the liner notes. You'll know only if you listen and recognize the person's voice. This way, people know we didn't do stuff for name sake, but really because that person belonged on that song," Travis said.
