I think that the Fates record is also gonna be recording probably around January, February. I'm still very involved in both of those bands, obviously. So, for sure, a new Armored Saint record and a new Fates Warning record is on the horizon in the next 18 months, for sure."[4] On May 13, 2020, Alder announced on his Instagram profile that his vocals for the album were finished.[5]
