The Riff, a song about a man in the middle of a desperate attempt to fix a broken relationship, debuted in Camden
the same day that the tracklisting for Away From the World was released. Later on 7.10.12
, Dave introduced the song for the first time and described it: "maybe it's little bit about how even how when you're walking down a noisy, happy, crazy street, you can be lonely as hell. I suppose I don't know, it might just be about love or something."
