Concept

The concept behind //Reality// was that the songs be very grounded in truth and experience in life. Thus, the cover art was Dan, in his LorD and Master plague doctor mask, doing the washing up in his own flat. Many of the songs were written in the 1990s, when Dan was an angsty teenager, writing about things going on around him, which helped keep the album feeling real and a touch gritty. The new songs written specifically for the album were //Leap of faith//, //Frantic//, //Who's laughing now?// and //Midnight//, though //Good thing going on// was written at around the same time as the other new tracks, it was written for a short film project and not the album itself.
