Despite our best efforts, there are some things we just can’t outrun. Everything catches up to us
in the end, no matter what we do to hide from it. It’s a reality that Petal’s Kiley Lotz examines on
Magic Gone, the band’s latest full-length album on Run For Cover.
Recorded over the course of a month at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, Magic Gone is a
bitingly honest look at adulthood, accountability, responsibility, and mental health and the
difficulties that go along with each of them. “I was a closeted queer person struggling with
chronic mental health disorders,” says Lotz of the three year period that inspired the album.
“There comes a moment where all the paranoia, anxiety and pain become too much and you
realize the structure you built to survive is no longer is going to serve you. I had to make some
very big life changes to make sure I didn’t die. It was not easy taking that level control over my
life after spending many years worrying about upsetting others and being the best and most
successful person I could be.”
