Musically, ‘Shattered Lives’ came together almost too easily. August brought the band an amazing piece of music and Rudy was instantly drawn to how beautifully passionate, yet somber it made him feel. At the time, Rudy had been floored by the suicide of Avicii and the whole band was still feeling the loss of Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington. Rudy just felt like, lyrically, he needed to say something. A voice for those of us left behind searching for answers. From there, the words and melody just flowed. We hope it helps shed a bit of awareness on this terrible disease we call mental illness and, of course, hope it might help someone who might be struggling with those issues.” – Waiting For Monday
