Irons in the Fire was one of the last songs we finished before recording the album, and was actually one long song before we decided to split it into three parts. The name "Irons in the Fire" actually comes from Part II of the song, which was originally its own song that we wrote (but never finished) when we still played with Trevor.

The beginning of the song was a "riff" Archie always jokingly threatened to use, which turned out to be a great way to kick off the album.

If you listen closely near the end, you can hear me count out the number of reps left before we go to Part II - this is because we never agreed on a number of times to play his 9/8 riff before transitioning.

This song constantly changes meter and tempo, showing our obsession with unusual time signatures and musical cues.
