This is the most important thing we have released to date. We put so much work into this and it took so much effort from so many amazing people to make this happen! We thank you all.
When writing this record, we started using the term "Acid Punk" to describe the sound that was coming out of it due to it holding many psychedelic and spiritual undertones. To put it lightly, we pushed this to new bounds for us. The vocals by ChuKy Charles were pushed to every extreme to be reached from pop-punk style hollering and tuvan throat singing to hardcore yelling and screechy high sung arena rock vocals. The drumming performed by Das Hoots reflects a different tone than previous releases. In "Parasitic Funk" he employs many drum parts that are stylistically jazz and funk oriented and in Lesson Learned, he utilizes a latin beat and odd polyrhythmic patterns on the ride cymbal in the bridge. Nellie performs more bass centered parts that stand out and provide a back bone to the record like the band hasn't has before. The vocal intensity that she brought to the table across the record opens and closes it well in songs like "The Blood of the covenant" and "You Crack Me Up".
We worked very hard on this record and I think the part that took a lot of the weight off of the bands shoulders was the passion that was shared by the Audio Engineer/Producer, Andy Chayer who understood and supported the bands message and goals with this release.
Thank you to every single person that takes the time to hear these songs and I hope that you identify with them and feel them as we do.
Special thanks to Andy Chayer for Tracking, Mixing, Mastering and Producing this, David Scroggins for providing Trumpet on "You Crack Me Up", Dakota Brown from providing Trombone on " You Crack Me Up" and Jude Noah for providing Violin on "Lesson Learned".
