"'New Measures of Failure' was one of the last songs that I finished writing lyrics for on this new album," said Gillichbauer. "The title is derived from a conversation between myself and original vocalist Jeff Ventimiglia regarding our current life situations.

"'New Measures of Failure' is a reflection on the process of drying-out, the realities of relapsing, and the subsequent sexual desires that come with chasing any form of serotonin. The song was written in part after a long term on-again off-again relationship had gone belly up for the last time and the cathartic release that comes from the desire and acceptance of being loathed by someone who once loved you."

Pre-orders for Songs for the Enamel Queen are available here.
