The album is preceded by two singles, the first being 'We Are Really Worried About You,' with its formidable saxophone sound, giving way to a surge of crushing percussion and heavy guitar riffs. The second single, 'Denial,' is a potent blend of Takiaya’s ominous and unsettling sax that blows wide open into riff city for almost 8 glorious minutes. Both encapsulate their message behind the music: to undermine and destroy the white supremacist colonial framework and to fight for Indigenous Sovereignty, Black and Indigenous Liberation, Water, Earth, and Indigenous land given back.
