The band performed the song for the first time during Paste Magazine live in New York on September 20.
About the new song, the band wrote on Facebook
"It's a song about the friendships of our past, some of which have fallen away, some of which have endured, all of which have marked us deeply, often in ways we still can't fathom.
A great lesson in acceptance....It was one of the first tracks we demo'ed for this album in early 2016. It felt immediately great, and we were all galvanized. Over the coming months, though, we began to question it, and doubt it, and wonder if it couldn't be better. We tried it again and again in several different studios, never feeling quite satisfied....On the verge of throwing our hands up, we decided to trust in that inspiration we felt at the beginning and put that earliest version on the album. So here it is. Engineered by Graham Lessard at Wild Studios in Saint-Zenon Quebec, mixed by Marcus Paquin....(dig Sarah's unique harp bending technique!)....Queens of the Breakers"
