“Effigy” features Roeser on vocals, and was recorded during a recent Chicago studio session. “We had never played this song together before, and I had despaired writing the lyrics for it, but we went and rehearsed it for a couple of days then banged it out like we used to, Touch and Go style,” he says, recalling the band’s early years on the Chicago indie label. “It’s not gonna sound too much like Saturation, by any means, and we felt like that was an appropriate way to come out swinging.”
