As told by lead vocalist, Christina Murphy, "Last One Standing is an anthem for anyone who feels like they've been knocked down in life, who just wants to give up, and needs a last minute encouragement to keep going."
Always Hope explores some of the tougher things in life (like losing a loved one, surviving abuse and finally cutting ties in a toxic relationship) but they all tie around in a positive way. The band elaborates,
"If you listen to our new record, you will hear that we draw inspiration from everyday life. We tackle a wide range of topics on Always Hope, but it can really be summed up by saying 'this is what it means to go through life in your 20's, in today's world.' We didn't shy away from any of the more intense topics either." The main goal is to connect with people through music, by delivering a sense of hope and positivity by opening up about some tough situations brings a sense of rawness to the lyrics and sound. The band continues, "we hope that in doing so we can help provide some listeners with a sense of sympathy or empathy and the feeling that they aren't alone in whatever they are experiencing."
"green day" is a slang term for spending a day smoking marajuana. Billie Joe Armstrong wrote a song called "Green Day" about his first experience with the drug, and it soon replaced "Sweet Children" as the band´s name.
