Frontman Howi Spangler commented about the new album on his Facebook page:
This album is the closest I’ve come to a diary. These songs are me dealing with the passing of my Dad in 2016 and my mom in 1996 as a kid, nearly wanting to quit music, the struggle of having a family and being away all the time, the crazy shit that happens when traveling in a van chasing a dream all for that hour and a half on stage every night and so much more.
I plan to give an in depth track by track in the coming weeks on the @talesfromthegreenroompodcast so lookout for that.
Anyway, I’m so fucking excited to finally get this out. We produced it ourselves. I did the vocals in my home studio, sometimes with my daughter in my lap. It means a lot to me and I can’t wait for you to hear it.
@sloganart crushed the art as usual. @mikestebe is such a great engineer. @holymolyd @nak_atakk @ballyhoo_blaze all slayed!
