“I believe the overall theme of the album is about life changing, and the process of adapting to it through the eyes of a young and inexperienced person,” guitarist and vocalist Jerry Frederick explained in a statement. “We wanted to capture a raw sound with the album, so we recorded the entire LP live in studio to do so.  We have played countless live shows, and consider this album an extension of the sound of seeing us in a live setting.  Several of these songs were written while we were in high school, and have been with us as we have grown as a band through the years.”

The band formed while the members were still in high school, performing in basements. Frederick ventured to England where he studied songwriting techniques with Ray Davies of The Kinks. He applied the techniques he learned while the band was recording their album at Element Studios in their hometown.

“To us, this record is really about every day emotions, situations, conflicts and the awkward ways we deal with them,” Frederick said. “We simply do it live, loud and with gusto.”
