There is a serious meaning behind the track, Guitarist Lewis Gerry explains:
“The first lyric we wrote for ‘Land of Lies’ was that refrain in the chorus: ‘I’ll always catch you when you fall’. I thought it would be cool to have a bit of a lyrical juxtaposition between the fast, intense verses and the big, melodic chorus. So Steve (Vocals) wrote these great lyrics around a theme of social media and the dangers it presents – the verse lyrics are a lot more accusatory and frustrated, directed at people who perpetuate this unobtainable image of perfection online, whereas as the track builds to the chorus the lyrics become more understanding and supportive.
The message to take away is kind of that we’re all these messy, flawed, complicated, sometimes ugly, sometimes pretty people, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to have (or appear to have) a perfect life, because there will be people there for you when things get tough.”.
Steve Barrett (Vocals) continues, speaking about recording process:
“I’m really happy with the way my vocals have come out, particularly the cleans. Josiah, the engineer, really pushed me to get the absolute best out of my voice and the environment was so comfortable that I could really focus without feeling self-conscious at all. I’m super happy with the result; the ‘Land of Lies’ chorus is possibly my favourite vocal I’ve ever recorded.“.
