While still young, Binger find themselves at the age of Skepticism - wondering if the dreams of their childhood and the realities of their current lives still have anything in common. Each track explores an area of skepticism that has effected the band; the kind of things anyone would be skeptical of - love, divorce, childhood dreams, death, dreaming, vice, addiction - all of the problems of the Quarter-Life Crisis so many young adults around the world find themselves in, and older adults "fondly" remember.
"Skeptics" reminds us that things are not always as they seem, but also that this is nothing to be afraid of. Who are the the skeptics - Binger? You? Me? Everyone!? The answer to that doesn't matter. If you follow Binger down the rabbit hole you pop out on the other side, a little older and a little more suspicious - but ready for what might come as you join the skeptics around you in our wandering through a constantly fluctuating musical world.
