  • “The angle this time around is the mirror opposite of the last release. While I Ate the Painting featured the band live in the studio, making it up as it happened, this EP takes a more deliberate approach. The songs were first played as basic guitar parts and recorded as such. Each band member came in and recorded their parts separately. We know what you're thinking. That's not how you make a rock and roll record. The weird thing is that this EP is just that. A rock and roll record. A hard rock and roll record album. Who would of thunk it?”
