This song is the first we had written for this new dark, loud project that was to become shut up. This song was written around the bass riff that was made up on an improv in may-june 2010 at our original small box space at soundspace on kinzie. Then after we moved into the new space this song was one of the first to be finished up and recorded. This recording has a bunch of guitar noise / noise keys overdubs by Jeremy Keller. It also has the rest of the regular lineup at the time of Anthony Lauricella on guitar and Stephen VanDeveer on drums.I wrote the words to this song out of watching a stephen hawking special on black holes. I realized how fucking scary one just one of those things can be. the massive vortex of gravity is an interesting subject for sure, and definitely something worth screaming in fear about. This song is kind of those last moments when you are getting sucked into a black hole and the frantic feeling that would evoke. Black holes are cool.
