In Their Words: “With ‘Firebound Road,’ I tried to capture the rough and tumble energy of touring and constantly being on the move. When you’re not sure if what you’re doing is worthwhile, it’s certainly not very profitable, but you know you love doing it so you keep rolling on. The line ‘feeling a little inconsequential’ in the chorus was a reference to the added feeling of being deemed ‘non-essential’ when the pandemic hit and the music industry was one of the first to shut down. Another autobiographical reference is the verse about the misspelled marquee. I know our name is pretty generic, but we showed up to a club we were very excited to be playing and there we were in big bold letters on the marquee… Mountain Town. An honest mistake I’m sure, but still a little deflating… and comical.” — Phil Barker, Town Mountain
