“It`s a huge sound from a band that’s going to be absolutely massive” Kerrang! Radio
“Flat Earth is a track that delves into the minds of people who persuade themselves into believing conspiracy theories. People that are so centered around their own perception of the truth that they refuse to see it any other way. The lyrics sums it up: Even if they see it, they probably won’t believe it.”
