We are so proud to have created this record. It has taken one and a half years, thousands of miles of commuting and labor like we never anticipated. This collection of songs is the best our brains have to offer as of right now, and we are extremely moved by the work we created and hope that you are too. It's been a long time coming. With all that we have learned from this record, we now have the wonderful opportunity to endeavor again and create even more ambitious works. We are excited for the prospects the future has to offer.
Thanks to all those who have supported us and keep supporting us.
Thanks to John's grandparents for all those practices in the basement.
Thanks to Stanley Balzekas for letting us use The Dealership.
