While visiting relatives on the Maine Coast with my wife Jen, I took a writing pad to try to finish lyrics for a guitar part I was working on. No luck. Then as we were gassing up to head home to MA, I saw a sign on the side of the gas station that said, "Dead River Company". I immediately started getting Stephen King vibes about a dead river flowing through a boring, nowhere town full of dead-eyed people... Which lead me to some Lovecraft vibes in the line, "deathly strange breeze, howling through the trees. Warnings, never heed. Never believe..."

I found this demo version on a USB stick and just had to send it to Kevin Carafa to kick the mix up a notch. The vocal is a bit different from the official release!
