Our last record, The Unlawful Trade Of Greco-Roman Art, took us forever to write and record. It was about two years to write and six months to record. We didn't want to do that again so we tried to write it way faster this time. I think it took less than a year to write and we recorded, mixed, and mastered it with our dear friend, Pat Hills at Earth Tone studio, in a month. We finished it a year ago and we expected it to be released on Honor Press, the label that put out our first album. Things were up in the air for a long time and we didn't know what was happening or if it was going to get released and finally, it all fell apart, but sweet Patrick came to the rescue and graciously offered to release our little rock and roll album on Ghost Ramp. Working with Patrick is rad, but you already know that. As far as making the record, we were definitely less focused on a specific sound when we were writing this. We wanted the last one to be cold and digital sounding and really harsh to listen to, which I think it is. It's exhausting. This one is pretty harsh too, but we also allowed ourselves to kind of do whatever we wanted as long as all three of us liked it and it was fun to play. That's why there are some quieter songs and it's not just screaming and loud guitars the whole time. Ugly noise is cool, but so is melody so we ended up mashing both of those together for this record. Thematically, this one is definitely more focused, but musically, I think it's a bit more diverse and dynamic.
