On the song Seth Avett noted: “Satan Pulls the Strings” started as a quiet and calm depression-era banjo song, and somehow in the studio it blossomed into a genre that I don’t even have a name for…the frenzied yet mechanical energy of it is a first for the band.’



The band also released an album trailer highlighting the making of hit single “Ain’t No Man,” as well as a video for The Making of “Satan Pulls The String,” both feature never before seen footage with Rick Rubin at Shangri La Studios.

On producing “Satan Pulls The String” Rick Rubin said:  I’m happy to make records to reflect what’s done live. But to widen the palette of what’s possible might lead to different kinds of songwriting in the future, and just keep the creative process exciting for the band
