"Godspeed EP" is the first
EP(and third release overall) by the band Anberlin. It was December 26, 2006, though it was originally proposed to be released two days later. Included in the EP are two tracks. The first track is "Godspeed," the first single of their third album "Cities", released on February 20, 2007.
Stephen Christiandiscussed the meaning of Godspeed in an interview:
It's about different stories through rock and roll history where drugs played a major downfall or death in the persona's life, such as[cite web|url=http://www.beatthescene.com/interviews/anberlin.html|title=Anberlin interview at BeatTheScene.com]
Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Nico, Moon, Vicious, etc. It's selfish and tiring. I feel that "rock stars" start believing their own hype and begin on an egocentric journey that inevitably ends in destruction.
He also stated in another interview that "Godspeed" was the hardest song of "Cities" to record, stating,
I think 'Godspeed' was the most difficult [song to record] . Not as much lyrically but it got frustrating because we couldn't figure out the chorus to the song. We may have come up with literally like 15 choruses. Or I did, it was just rough and it turned out all right!
