(seen in Ungrateful, City of Sin, and Issues music videos); Peavey Wolfgang. my girlfriend of eight years, her grandmother had recently passed away, so I Interscope did well, they spent a lot of money on us and everything, (laughs) out of "Issues" [lead single off of 10's Escape the Fate] and it's like, dude! It was always us four, the four band members [guitarist Monte Money. Robert Ortiz (drums), Bryan "Monte" Money (guitar, vocals, keyboards, synthesizer, ), Max Green (bass, Release Date Issues Remix EP [ remixes].
Whether Ronnie [Radke] and Falling In Reverse played after or before us or whatever, the tour was [good] because the bands were playing together, and it was great.
Everything was just how we wanted it to be. He throws his suitcase of clothes on the bus. The tour gets ready to start. You know we love you. Wish him the best. So, we immediately take the post down, like, five minutes after we posted it, and then that week goes by. So, we obviously questioned him about that. I never accused him of anything. Wish you were here. When can we expect you back?

It turned into him wanting his suitcase back. He had a new suitcase, and the suitcase he put on the bus was old and crappy, and he wanted us to send his suitcase back. He wants his clothes. We were getting mixed information. Who knows where he was. So the suitcase gets sent out that afternoon and we hit the stage that night.
We were in Indiana. You guys know more than we do. Thank you so much, Craig.
Then within that week of him deciding to leave, it just coincidently happens that he joins Falling In Reverse. You [a[and Radke]ave been friends for a while. Like Craig said, the way he went about it is what really just struck me as odd, because I took a little convincing, because Max has a history.
Max Green commented on the album, saying, "This record is the cure for the modern day music epidemic, We are wiping the slate clean and re-writing rock music as you know it.
The band had been working on the album since the release of This War is Ours in Being able to completely form the writing and recording process with the current lineup for the first time, the band felt that the album would be a great representation for the band. This is due to the fact that when Mabbitt first joined the band, he felt very rushed to write a record and fit into an already established band. In addition, the debut on a major label also led to the band choosing to self-title the album.
Lyrically, the album is heavier and darker than previous efforts, according to Mabbitt.

In an interview, he explained the choice of direction for the album in that they were, "figuring out what we enjoy playing live, what we enjoy listening to on our record. For writing, Craig Mabbitt expressed that he believes it is more important to focus on what the band enjoys doing rather than copying other bands for success.
Mabbitt also praised Gilmore for his ability to perfect the album without affecting their music. Commenting on the album, Mabbitt feels that "This record has the heaviest song the band has ever written, it has the softest ballad the band has ever written, it has the craziest solo Monte has ever written.
The whole record just has everything in it. Mabbitt stated that, "[She] was screaming for help and nobody helped her at all. Everybody just turned the other cheek. That was something that really struck me, and I see that happening a lot, just people not wanting to lend a helping hand to people when somebody is hurting That's definitely where I went with that song. The ballad track "World Around Me" takes a broader view and was written about life in general.
However, the second Guillotine was written as well to relate to real-life soldiers in battle. For the self-titled album, Mabbitt wrote a third Guillotine track but did not want to base it off of Halo again. Instead, he wrote a more personal track about his father who was in the military when Mabbitt was a child.
On both tracks "Lost in Darkness" and "Liars and Monsters", a track that appears on the Deluxe Edition of the album, he sang at the lowest pitch he has done yet for a track. On the track "Zombie Dance", Mabbitt described the recording process and that he recorded five layers of vocal harmony for the final mix in addition to little sound effects.
He explained it was difficult to achieve the high harmonies and right pitches right for all of the tracks. Another difficulty he experienced while recording was boosting the endings of songs for an epic feels.
Despite this, Craig stated he enjoyed experimenting and that he "can't wait to keep on going back into the studio and experimenting on a ton of different things.
The decision to put them as bonus tracks were encouraged to keep the length and tracks on the album to a manageable size. Mabbitt jokingly stated that the band recorded so much material, almost two albums worth, that he "just want[ed] to record everything and just release a 20 track album.
Two ballads and about five heavier songs were cut because the band had to decide "Which one is the strongest one?
Which one do we have most vocals to? What's going to fit in the diversity of the record?

It would have been more like a straightforward record. That's not what we like to do. We like to have a lot of that diversity in our sound. Before finalizing, however, Monte Money decided to rerecord the guitar part with a lower tune to change the sound of the song. After rerecording, the band agreed they liked the original version better but the deadline for the record did not allow them to finish the song in time so they are going to keep it for a later release.

Max Green also confirmed through Formspring that there will be a song co-written by guitarist John 5 of Rob Zombielater seen to be "Liars And Monsters". He has also hinted towards there being a "Guillotine III: The Aftermath" track on the album,  which was later confirmed as true. During early recording, Max Green was questioned on Formspring about the band possibly changing record labels. Max responded by saying that he will reveal all of that at a later time. This would make the record the first to be released without Epitaph Records.
Craig Mabbitt stated that the band had no issues with Epitaph but the appeal to bring their music to a wider audience led to their signing with Interscope. The band was initially worried about switching but were pleased that neither the new label or the new producer wanted to change or control the band.
