Analysis and Explanation

The band spent months trying to get MK Ultra to sound right when played live. In the end it was decided to perform the song half a step down, and add studio vocals after the line "and they're breaking through". This is why it made its live debut quite late into 2009. MK Ultra often had additional riffs after the song. Though performed commonly after its debut until the beginning of the 2010 tour, MK Ultra was seen sporadically at best throughout 2010. At Austin City Limits 2010, Matt dedicated this song to Alex Jones.

The song has made no appearances since 2010, probably due to the difficulty of playing it live. It also wasn't an option at the 2017 Shepherd's Bush Empire by request gig, which suggests that band have no intention of playing it live anytime soon.
