Suicide Pact was self-produced by the band with the added talents of Jason Lader (Maroon 5, Rilo Kiley, Julian Casablancas). From the churning, he-said, she-said “LAX” and the wistfully dark album title track “Suicide Pact”, to the driving, Madonna-esque “Heartbeat”, and the crooning, smooth vocal pairings between Berg and Runion on “Cleverly Disguised”, each and every song stands on its own as a heart-wrenching narrative and a master course in lyrical prowess. With a band made up of five of music’s most innovative artists, one would expect nothing less. This band, this de facto family, has made a Suicide Pact. It also happens to be the name of their record.
