Akratic, is a thrashy punk banger that serves as a frenetic introduction to the varied 10-song album. Named from the Greek word akrasia, meaning to act against one's own better judgment, the track is the group’s admission of guilt to exactly that. Clocking in at a mere 2 minutes and with vocals handled this time by Pierson, this is the sound of the habit driven mind resisting its own advice to break unhealthy cycles.
