“The Valley” is a reference to the part of Hardin Valley (west of Knoxville, Tennessee) where vocalist Phil Bozeman grew up. Set against this backdrop, he approaches his subject matter unflinchingly, building upon everything that came before. Making it clear that he has survived that which he was forced to endure and is not afraid to confront it.
Guitarist Alex Wade explains:
“Phil has been upfront in his lyrics in the past about hardships he endured in his life as a child. And I believe with this record we tried to paint a better picture of that. I feel our music is Phil’s release from his past, being able to get it out and speak about it. And hopefully anyone who hears it that may have gone through similar experiences can find some release in it as well.”
