The title is taken from this Leonard Schrader movie called The Killing of America,” says the group’s Michael Berdan via Bullett. “It’s a documentary about gun violence in America in the early ’80s. We started writing it around the time the Atlanta shooting happened, and we were hearing about a new mass shooting every day. This was just our way of speaking to that.”
