In the wake of the Manchester bombing earlier this week, the Manchester natives acknowledge in themselves the emotional shift around this album release and their scheduled performances throughout Manchester. The Charlatans' Tim Burgess articulates how they consider the purpose changed. "It was previously about celebration, fun, and having a party. Now I think it's more about meeting up with friends, fans, and family, and enjoying time together... Counting our blessings while remembering those who are still going through anguish."

He goes on to explain, "Manchester is a very special place for The Charlatans and we will be spending this weekend with our brothers and sisters there."
