This batch of songs best represented the Nathan Roise era - power pop, pop-punk, post-hardcore. We had a few shows under our belt and were finding our niche. The recording was a bit of a disaster as we started off tracking instruments with Jim Wear at What's Hennepin, but cut the session short when it became clear that band and engineer weren't really clicking together.

We finished the vocals and mixing with Kelly Pieklo at Angel Beach. Two additional songs were recorded at What's Hennepin but the results weren't up to snuff, so the final demo was cut to these four songs here.

Shortly after completing this demo, Nathan announced he would be leaving to focus on his record label, 2024 Records. The Michael Grey era was about to begin.
