There is darkness in the poetry of Ultimate Success Today," says punk legend, founding member of The Raincoats, and friend of the band Ana da Silva. "The theme of things ending, above all human existence, is present and reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy's The Road. Our world has reached a point that makes us afraid: fires, floods, earthquakes, hunger, war, intolerance…There are cries of despair. Is there hope? Greed is the sickness that puts life in danger." "The re-release of our first album had me thinking about the passage of time and its ultimate conclusion," says singer Joe Casey of Ultimate Success Today. "Listening to No Passion All Technique again, I could hear myself hoping for an introduction and a long future, but also being cognizant that it could be 'one and done' for us. So, when it came time to write Ultimate Success Today, I was reminded of that first urgency and how it was an inverse of my current grapple with how terribly ill I've been feeling lately. Was that sick feeling colouring how I felt about the state of the world or was it the other way around?"
