Genghis Tron has also undergone some lineup changes. Vocalist Mookie Singerman has left the band, and is replaced by vocalist Tony Wolski (The Armed). Genghis Tron is also joined by drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Sumac, Baptists) for the new album.

"We said it was just a hiatus and we meant it! It’s been incredible writing music again and hearing everything come together in the studio," said founding member Michael Sochynsky. "This is the album we’ve always wanted to write. We can’t wait to share what we’ve been working on."

Hamilton Jordan, the other half of the remaining founding duo, looks back on how Genghis Tron formed their sound.

"I was 19 when we started writing songs," he said. "Michael was 20. The first thing we tried to do was cram together all our influences—shredding guitars and blastbeats, and then out of nowhere comes this really pleasant sounding Boards Of Canada or Autechre moment. It seemed like a great idea at the time.”"
