In earlyChris Cheney went to New York for three months to begin writing songs for the album. Cheney said that for the new album he "wanted to meet different people and gather some fresh resources and influences to hopefully take my writing and add a different element".
Later in the year, the band regrouped to begin Тонкая грань - Психолирик - Первый удар in a Now The Spider Cocoons The Victim, Meaning The Spider Wraps The Victim In Plastic.
- Coil with Black Melbourne recording studio. Cheney said that they had performed "a week's worth of gigs playing only new songs to see which ones would sink or swim" and that they had recorded fewer studio demos than for previous albums. Cheney said that the album took "like a year and a half of writing" and that they always seem to "go through songs" in rehearsal.
We ended up with more songs and at the end of it we went through every tune and picked the best ones that fit together. Rage Against the Machine as well. Something that those three bands share is the ability to get on a groove and stay on it, letting it pulsate and grow in a tribal sort of way, making it quite transfixing without changing the basic formula of each song.
Recording of the album, with Nick DiDiawho came out from Atlanta to produce the album, was completed in May after which it was sent to Brendan O'Brien for mixing. Chris Cheney has said that for the album, the "aim has been to construct something more direct, simple and therefore tougher and bigger sounding than anything we've done before.
Also and most importantly this will be an album, not just a bunch of songs. The album's producer, Nick DiDiasuggested to the band that keeping the songs slower would increase their impact. Musically, Cheney has said that he used various effects to get a broader sound; "I have used more effects on this record vs others. There was the chorus peddle [sic] which gave songs an '80s flavour we were excited about.
The good thing about a new guitar peddle [sic] is when it influences your writing. Everything must rejuvenate, everything goes in cycles, and we are all going through the same thing, really. It doesn't make exact sense, which is why I kind of like it"  .
For the first time, with the new album to promote, the band has hired a second guitarist to play live with them. When asked about this, Cheney said, "the songs on the new album aren't more complex but we felt there were some sounds and elements missing from our live show that are on our records.
We plan to use him for some of the songs but not all, the idea is that it creates a fuller sound and you will hear parts of our record that have not been executed on stage. It will free me up to play some parts that have been missing from our gigs. The title track and lead single was premiered on triple J Breakfast on 3 June However, Doug Wallen of The Vine was not so glowing. Citing a 'radio gloss' on the songs, he feels that the record lacks 'the boiling blood of the best anti-establishment music'.
