"The name fits, especially since some of the band's music explores religious themes. One new song called "Glorify" features the lines: "Glorify the Lord above, with your drink and making love / Glorify the Lord my son, with your whiskey and your gun." "This is our best attempt at the Johnny Cash bruiser gospel song," Wilson says.

"There's a scripture that says, 'Everything you do, do it to the glory of God.' ... In a sense, we're coming from that kind of background, but we wanted to write something a little bit more interesting and a little bit more out of the ordinary to your typical gospel song. But at the same time, it's not poking fun. It is a little bit tongue-in-cheek, but it's a story about somebody screwing up."
