In his latest exclusive cover interview with Alternative Press, Knight gave fans a preview of the new record and its thematic inspiration. The frog on the cover of the LP has a poignant meaning to Knight, as it signifies him grappling with religious guilt.
In the article, he revealed, “Frogs have always been one of my favorite animals. However, when I learned that frogs were seen as dirty and unclean in a biblical context, it was interesting to me that something that I saw as so good, natural and beautiful could also be seen as a bad thing through a biblical lens. Growing up in church, you’re taught that everything is so wrong and bad. I always felt like shit, so [this album] is the breakaway from that specifically.”
