The Romance Of Affliction is a reflection on the last couple years of our lives, it serves as a tongue in cheek but genuine look at what it means to struggle through adversity while trying to find some beauty in it all. What is means to make art about part of us and our lives that are ugly and how that seems to resonate the most with people. What it means to be in love with someone as well as the substances that are killing you both, what it means to use sex as a way to try to feel content and loved but without a true connection that instead makes you feel more isolated. the poetic nature of writing songs about addiction only to almost die of an overdose a few weeks later. what it means to be most comfortable in chaotic state of dismay. It’s a pretty coat of paint on a crumbling structure. This is the Romance of Affliction.
