Earlier this year, frontman Simon Neil admitted that he was in a “terrible headspace” during the early process of making the album.
Speaking to NME, Neil discussed his mental health and revealed that touring around the band’s last album ‘Opposites’ saw him struggling.
Following a UK headline tour in April 2013, the band called off a series of shows, citing the frontman’s “serious respiratory problem”.
“I had a bit of a ‘do’,” Neil said. “This is going to turn into a right downer interview, but before that our very first tour manager died of leukaemia; Storm [Thorgerson, designer of their artwork] died; my gran died; my best friend’s brother died on Christmas Day… It felt like when things couldn’t get any worse, they just kept getting worse.
“I was just in a terrible headspace,” he explained. “It’s just the way I am. I’m always going have a bit of trouble convincing in here [taps his head] that everything’s going alright, when it is going alright. I needed to shed a skin in a serious way last year. We’d done more things than I could ever have dreamed of and I still felt slightly unfulfilled and unhappy.”
