DecembeRadio recorded their sophomore effort at Atlanta's famed Southern Tracks studios and once again turned to producer Scotty Wilbanks. "It just goes so much deeper than just being a producer. Scotty is like a brother to us," says Bunn. "He really is like the fifth member of the band you could say. He understands what we want to do and where we want to go musically. We grew up on a lot of the same things and listened to the same music; but at the same time, it's nice because he's a keyboard player and we're a more guitar-driven band. It's good to get that different perspective from somebody who's not a guitar player. He brings us balance and helps us stay true to who we are."
"While recording the new record," says Josh Reedy, "we tried to ask ourselves a few questions: 'Who are we and what are we trying to say?' The song 'Satisfy Me' not only represents who we are musically but how we feel spiritually as a band. You can never be satisfied with who you are alone. You'll come up short every time. The relationship we have with God is the only thing that will ever satisfy us. Music will never satisfy us, nor money, fame or any of those things. Being satisfied by Christ is the reason we're here on this earth. To satisfy is exactly what He died to do. The music, lyrics and soul of this record as a whole are about not being afraid to be who you are. Be satisfied."
As they began writing and recording their sophomore effort, the band felt a new sense of confidence in their musicianship and a feeling of creative freedom. "We started finding out that we had grown so much as writers and as a band," says Reedy. "We were having the most fun that we've ever had in making this music and that's the way it should be."
