Thirteenth Step were a Louisville, Kentucky rock band formed in 2006 by Michael Anthony King (lead vocals and lead guitar), his younger brother Nicholas Brae King (bass guitar and backing vocals), Brent Evans (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), and Jonathan Barnes (drums and percussion). Thirteenth Steps' sound drew from a variety of musical influences, including Post-grunge, Nu metal, and Psychedelic rock, and came closest to Acid rock music within the context of Post-grunge. Despite the prominence of Post-grunge during the band's early years, their stripped-down sound contrasted with acid punk, demonstrating a more "rootsy" influence that emerged from Neo-psychedelia. Many of Thirteenth Steps' compositions were melancholic.

    Do you really want to know what the thirteenth step is? For all that is human, it is to live, for all that ? that with all the twelve step programs in the world, the thirteenth step is death, simple math my friends, if you oversee the beauty in this album then commit suicide, that is the ultimately the 13th step, die if you want to, LIVE THROUGH THIS, BE A BETTER PERSON, and isolate yourself from yourself..........

    I know this album is known for helping recovering addicts but is the title "Thirteenth Step" referring to the final step after the twelve step program? Where the Thirteenth Step is either living with the damage and temptation for the rest of your life or the Thirteenth Step meaning you fall back into the hole of addiction, repeating the endless cycle... Just a thought and hopefully somebody will add or tell me another possible theory. I'd love to hear it, honestly Jun 20
