Jeremy Zucker said of the album, “I felt like a little lost after 'Love is Not Dying'. It took me a while to figure out who I was and what I stood for. When you get wrapped up in relationships, like going through a breakup, it's really easy to lose yourself when you have really strong feelings. 'Crusher' is finding myself again. 'CRUSHER' is as much a departure as it is an arrival. 'love is not dying', thematically, was a doomed love letter. A desperate plea for compassion and understanding in the face of destruction. Making music during a pandemic is a difficult task enough, but 'love is not dying' felt like a pretty impossible project to follow up. One 'pandemic'-inspired song felt like enough, and not much was going on in my life, at all. The well was dry, so to speak. I was slow to realize that the person I wrote 'love is not dying' to (not for), actually hadn't acknowledged any of it. During this time, a lot of things came to light...”
- He continued, “'CRUSHER' is my response. I take back everything I said. It's no longer about us, or me. It's about you. During the writing process of this album, I became more myself than ever. It's a more raw and confident me. I found new influences sonically, and I finally learned how to have fun making music again. I focused on more energy-driven elements of music production: live drums, saturation, and a bit of yelling. 'CRUSHER' is a word that describes something or someone that 'crushes' – in my case, it was the aforementioned person who crushed me…lol. It felt right to be front and center visually to support the music, instead of putting the music in front of me like I feel I've done in the past. We took the picture [on the album artwork] in front of a literal rock crusher – metaphors involving a complex and deliberate mechanism to systematically crush the literal 'unbreakable' ensue… It felt quite appropriate.”
