This is the only album on which lead singer Brad Arnold played drums.
3 Doors Down are; lead singer Brad Arnold, lead guitarist Chris Henderson, drummer Greg Upchurch, rhythm guitarist Chet Roberts and bassist Justin Biltonen. They play a defiant 90s style of post-grunge and alternative rock, while oftentimes edging on soft rock, hard rock, with a little sweet Southern rock, with overarching themes of angst, rebellion, revenge, yearning, and abandonment. The band has six studio albums to date, The Better Life, Away from the Sun, Seventeen Days, 3 Doors Down, Time of My Life and Us and the Night, and one American Music Award for New Rock Artist. All the way back in 2018 Brad Arnold stated that 3 Doors Down had been writing new material; "Who knows when we'll follow that one up. But we have been writing new songs. Maybe we'll release a single or a couple of new songs. We just might not release an album for a while. We still love creating new material, there's just not a market for it. But fans still like going out and seeing us."
