In Cold Blood has posted a video clip online for the song "They Live," which is based on Ray Nelson's short story "Eight O'Clock In The Morning" and John Carpenter's movie "They Live." The band also commented on the song:
"Those same influences strongly inspired the whole album. The lyrics inquire the exposure of our mainly consumer society, where media, conformity and trends drive and force people to not think independently and to pursue ephemeral aims even in an almost anti-human way. We're ready to play intensively to support this album and these messages, so we're pleased to announce the following dates, including the first In Cold Blood Mexican tour arranged by Rebel Prods Mexico."
