The lyrics tell a story about lost love and the difficulty of getting it back once you've crossed the line.

In support of the single, the band will release an accompanying lyric video on Feb. 24.

Following that, Colin MacDonald (lead vocals and guitar), John-Angus MacDonald (guitar), Jack Syperek (bass) and Sean Dalton (drums) will host their official launch party with fans at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on Apr. 26.
