"These are precarious times we live in, The Rise and Fall of Babylon signifies something that I feel has been a long time coming," exclaims front man Eric Knight. "Babylon, meaning our country (the USA) is slowly spinning out of control and entering into vast turmoil, I feel we are at the beginnings of a revolution one of which the likes we've never seen before. As a nation, we are no longer viewed in the regard we once were. The title reflects this shift and quite possibly a prelude of what's to come."
The album was once again helmed by GRAMMY award winner and longtime DOB producer Andres Torres, one of the producers behind the (Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee) mega-hit of the summer "Despacito" which has been sitting atop the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 for a record nine weeks.
