“We have come to a critical place in life and in our world, and much like an eclipse overtaking the sun, we are losing the light,” explained Kittie guitarist/vocalist Morgan Lander. “It’s a song of coming to terms with the damage we do and acceptance of our fate. We’ve let darkness take hold, and so we are resolved to fade in the night with it.” The band is pictured above.
