The stripped down approach is actually slightly similar to that of the original composition in its stylistic approach. However the lack of the layered vocals and electronics and distortion does give the song a certain new, added depth of emotion, presenting more of a sense of vulnerability.
The band offered the following statement about the new take of ‘Circle The Drain.’
“We’ve always loved taking our songs back to the basics, and ‘Circle the Drain (Stripped)’ is one of our favorites yet,” the statement reads. “We feel like the song really gets to breathe when you strip it down.”
