The man behind the production speaks on the genre blurred track and said,

‘Up In Flames’ is important because it embodies the high and low of love and friendship. We all have good times with those we love and the memories we keep can make letting go hard whether it’s a friend or a loved one, but at the end of the day all good things must come to an end, it’s about the journey and what is made between the start and finish line.

 Working with Alex was seamless. We ended up getting together a while back and in one session we wrote and tracked the lyrics,” he adds. “Having him so dialed in and hands on with the creative process was really exciting too. A month ago we thought the song was in a good place to call it complete, but Alex hit me up and wanted to re-record because he knew he could do a better pass of it. He even had ideas on how to refresh the arrangement musically. He was an important and key piece to this song coming together the way it did. 
This isn’t the first time Kayzo has brought the guttural and emotional essence of metal rock to EMD and god do we hope it’s not the last. So many of us find such comfort in two of our musical pulls. Makes us “Up In Flames” to see what’s to come next.
