While on our California mini-tour in Jan, 2007 we hopped into House of Faith in Oakland to record new songs for this 7"EP - a co-release with Refuse Records (Poland/Germany) and Stress to Death(Italy).
|"Making this record was a very different experience than doing Reactive last year, or recording in 1989-1991. At those recordings usually Aaron and I would come up with songs and we'd pull them together and Jim and Steve would make them actually sound like something and there it would be. Steve also brought a couple of songs into Reactive.
"But with the new EP, we really did build it together.We each came to the studio with different little bits and pieces of songs and I of course had my book full of possible lyrics and little snippets of songs and everything came together much more organically. It was a great experience and the final music ended up being really awesome.
"Connecting with Robert from Refuse Records and Pietro from Stress to Death also made the record title seem even more so. Robert's label is oriented towards straight edge and Pietro has a queer focus and we straddle so many worlds that this project was a perfect opportunity for people - within the world of hardcore but in different areas of it - and around the world - to get together and create something."
