Inspired by the children’s nursery rhyme, Solomon Grundy, and the Greek myth of Hyacinthus, Noctourniquet is a concept album, with vocalist Cedric Bixler Zavala stating, “It’s about embracing life for what it should be. There’s a view of the elitist lifestyle - that being an artist is unattainable. I’m trying to write this story that reminds people that we’re all artists.”
Noctourniquet debuted on the Billboard 200 at #15 with 21,000 albums sold in its first week. In Canada, the album debuted at #44 on the Canadian Albums Chart. In its second week of sales, the album dropped 85 places to #100 on the Billboard 200.
