According to a press release: “For The Love Of Thugs And Fools is viewed by the band as a document of the many characters they have encountered through the life of the band, whether it be in love, loss, friendship, or hatred. Having toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe since the band's inception in late 1999 and living in the volatile urban environment Chicago, where encounters with crime, violence, and 'street justice' are unavoidable, there has been much subject matter for the band to draw from. Embracing the philosophy that a bottle of whiskey and some loud guitar is often the best cure available for these challenges and ordeals, Bible Of The Devil have chosen to document their grievances in the form of one devastating Rock n' Roll platter."
Singer/guitarist Mark Hoffmann commented: "The few years since the last full-length have been like a dare, A dare to create a soaring, punishing rock n' roll record of this magnitude. It is a dare that we have been forced to answer ourselves."
