While living in Montreal in 2012, Greg Webber, lead singer and frontman of Kill Chicago, took part in the massive student protests regarding proposed tuition hikes in Quebec. Returning to his hometown of Fredericton, Webber soon realized the difficulty of making ends meet while battling staggering student debt. Following this, the band put out a call to fans to share their student debt stories.
 
"The level of honesty that people were willing to share made me feel that we might be on to something," says Webber about the participant's stories.  
 
Though "Take The City" was written about a situation in Montreal, the lyrics of the song speak to a larger problem. "Being served black coffee by a Masters Degree," for example, refers to the large number of highly educated people working in unrelated fields across the country.
