Bassist Ford and guitarist Holycross were friends and mutual members of previous projects (Truth End Ever, Gold Plated Ocean, Toxemia) before coming together under the banner of Mayfly. Vocalist/guitarist Jared Lacey later joined the band after meeting Holycross at a concert they both attended. Thompson joined the band in late 2012 to complete the current lineup. Speaking on the lyrical content for the songs, lead guitarist Joel states, "the lyrics are filled with a lot of political angst. We see a lot of propaganda in society these days and seek to reveal what is often hidden behind the fog of what remains untold. We're really just interested in discovering the truth in all things."
The album was produced by Justin Moore whose recording credits includeRed Morning Voyage, Corpus Christi, The Beneath and Great American Beast.
Eternal Respiration, the first ordinance from Mayfly's arsenal, will also receive a video treatment shortly. The video is expected to be ready around the same time as the EP release. In reference to the song, Holycross reveals "the song came about as Tony, our bass player, was smoking a cigarette. He made a comment asking 'how can I speak truth about life when I'm inhaling death every day?' So he took that theme and ran with it. So the song is basically about the human condition and rising above the things that drag us down."
