“We actually wrote the song in Milan during a tour rehearsal, and a lot of it was recorded there. We’ve gone back and forth with Andy in Italy, from the Platinum Underground in Phoenix. And with our mixer and co-engineer Alessio Garavello in London. While we’re all staying positive and just keeping busy. It’s heartbreaking to see what’s going on over there with the death toll climbing every day.

It’s absolutely devastating to see what the country is going through right now. The people, and its culture, have been so welcoming to me over the years. That I’m honored to do anything I can to give something back to them during this time of need.”
