“We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a label like Good Fight,”says guitarist/vocalist Scott Acquavella. “They have put out such an awesome catalog of records from all across the musical board. In a world full of uninspired, flash in the pan type bands, Good Fight believed in what we do and gave us a chance to put out a record that we’re extremely proud of.”
Drummer Matthew Taibi explains the band’s thought process behind the LP title, “Much of The Devil’s Despair deals with the themes of dehumanizing social forces; forces which come from human activity and yet become confused for rigid, natural laws. In “Medusa Misgendered,” the trend being criticized specifically is the objectification of femininity under the gaze of masculinity, reversing the myth of Medusa as the title suggests. Even for the side that benefits from reification, there is still an unnecessary loss of substance and they themselves become a reflection of the very world they’ve frozen. This hits on the larger theme captured by the artwork, where the Devil himself becomes a victim of the demonic force of dehumanization which originally emanated from him.”
