The band had this to say on their forthcoming effort:

The ​album, Without ​New ​Growth ​Process ​Is ​Bloodshed, ​is ​lyrically ​a ​singular ​idea ​broken ​into various ​specific ​points ​or ​examples. ​The ​general ​theme ​of ​the ​album ​is ​the ​idea ​that, ​from ​birth a ​child ​is told ​what ​is ​right ​and ​wrong, ​what ​is ​good ​and ​bad, ​based ​on ​the ​opinions ​of ​the narrow​minded ​individuals ​who ​influence ​them ​through ​their ​upbringing. ​This ​inevitably ​leads ​a curious ​mind ​to ​question ​why ​things ​are ​as ​they ​are. ​This ​preparational ​approach ​to ​education teaches ​children ​to ​grow ​up ​and ​be ​like ​an ​adult ​as ​soon ​as ​possible. ​There ​is ​little ​time ​to ​bask in ​the ​serene ​innocence ​of ​ignorance. As ​we ​come ​of ​age ​and ​develop ​our ​own ​opinions ​and ​beliefs ​we ​struggle ​with ​their ​validity when ​weighed ​against ​the ​opinions ​and ​beliefs ​that ​were ​forced ​upon ​us ​as ​we ​grew ​up. ​An emotionally ​turbulent ​period ​follows ​and ​as ​that ​storm ​passes, ​and ​our ​sight ​clears, ​we ​realize that ​the ​irony ​of ​it ​all ​is ​that ​adults ​spend ​most ​of ​their ​time ​trying ​to ​regain ​the ​innocence ​and happiness ​that ​they ​forfeited ​in ​a ​mad ​rush ​to ​grow ​up.

Without New Growth Process Is Bloodshed was produced and mixed by Jesse Gander (3 Inches of Blood, Baptists, Anciients) at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC, and mastered by Stu McKillop (Archspire, A Textbook Tragedy, Unleash the Archers). The album features artwork by Nick Patterson.
