The album title was inspired by one of frontman "Ville Valo's relationships that has since ended. He told Kerrang!: "It's a sonic diary of that (affair). The album's also about both the theoretical and practical aspects of relationships which are an impossible problem to resolve. 'Screamworks' represents a cathartic , primal scream; it's a big middle finger; it's a f--k off, I want to do what I want to do."
