Speaking of the single Koto Kill producer says “Riot at 45 is about a heist-turned-party at a record store. It was inspired by The Prodigy, but after collaborating with Mo Stellato on the guitars, we also ended up taking certain Tool influences for good measure. We wanted something that evoked a 90s Marilyn Manson sexy coolness.”
