“I think the irony of “Tell The World” was that it marked the beginning of making this record, but it was written as a suicide note. Chris Cornell had just killed himself and it was a really dark time for me. I didn’t know Chris personally, and I hadn’t achieved what he had, but I felt like I could empathize with why he did what he did. The amount of pressure we put on ourselves is often times untenable, especially in this business. The highs are beyond our wildest dreams and the lows leave a void that is literally irreplaceable. I have never been suicidal, but I have felt the weight of what it means to try your fucking hardest while the world expects more.” - Brooks Paschal
