“Revelry is defined as “lively and noisy festivities that especially involve drinking a large amount of alcohol.” My life seemed to be one ongoing Revelry. Numbing the pain that I didn’t want to face. This song is about how much of a hold these moments had over me. A fraught retelling of the many failed attempts to escape these actions which I knew, inherently was self-destructive.” – Ben Hazlewood
