'Language' was created together at North Carolina's The Basement Recording with producer Jamie King(Between The Buried And Me, The Human Abstract, He Is Legend). As tastemaker blog MetalSucks noted in a post with the headline, "Drop What You're Doing and Listen to the New Contortionist Single Right Now!," Language embraces the spacey adventurous flourishes of Intrinsic, with concise and streamlined certainty.

The album's first single, "Language I," was also the first song the group crafted for the record. The product of much time and deliberation,every moment transitions seamlessly to the next. "Primordial Sound" boasts an emphasis on chord progressions with key signature modulations, and yet it has an accessible rock n' roll vibe and swing. "Thrive" is a wicked blend of the atmospheric heft of Deftones and The Contortionist's own well established progressive attack. Ever the thoughtful organizers and creators, The Contortionist mapped out the record from a philosophical standpoint with a compelling theme.

The core conceptual vision of Language revolves around balance—a balance between classic songwriting and exhibitionist musicianship, intuitive expression, and something more calculated.
