Song deals with mother's cancer
"Radiate Me" is based on vocalist Robin's difficult personal experiences, as he explains in the press statement. "The last year has been pretty tough for me as my mum was diagnosed with two types of cancer. She immediately took up the fight and underwent chemotherapy, which was very hard for her. I kept driving her to different hospitals, taking care of the household and looking after her as a person. But above all, I saw how she suffered and what the poison of this treatment did to her. The chemotherapy almost killed her. 'Radiate Me' is all that in one song. As it stands now, she's doing well and we all hope it stays that way. Fuck cancer!"
