This 2011 sophomore release from Why They Came expands Barnett and company’s sound significantly. With rich, provocative lyrics and a diverse array of instruments best displayed in “Three States Away” and “I Give Up (Said the Porcupine), Why They Came takes the reigns in their developing career as a band. Complex drum arrangements in tracks like “Pilate’s Pistol” and “When Jesus Comes Again” hearken back to tracks from Led by the Unqualified to Do the Unnecessary while building in a new direction entirely.
Produced by Aaron Sollman. Mastered by Kent Holmes at Soundworks.
