A very special thanks to our Engineers/Studio Spirit Guides.
Matt Bayles for being endlessly helpful and providing the work horse that is The Red Room.
Kurt Bloch (Engineer) for being our spirit animal, mentor and card carrying member of the band.
Cameron Nicklaus (Engineer) for cleaning up our sounds halfway in, making it huge and killing us with kindness.
Johnny Sangster for always getting our backs and helping us out!
Michelle Leyva (Nails' super gorgeous wife!) for getting her hooks in us and dragging us around the country for everyone to see. You spread the gospel like no other and we appreciate it.
Doug Krebs - You always know how to make it shine, sound loud and musical. Thanks for not squashing the fuck out of the record.
Derek Moree (Engineer) for knowing the ropes at Red Room and letting The Chasers bounce off of them.
Alex Robert for always being available and helping out with our website BIZ.
Shay Roth - Thanks for guiding us through to the end of this record. Mistakes could have been made without and we are all very grateful to have you as a friend. And of course, thanks for designing all of our merch and posters. Appreciate your help!
Curtis James for hand painting the Knife and " The Chasers"! Such an honor to have you do the artwork.
The Ice Wizard! - Your work with The Chasers has led to this amazing record. Without you I would have had to record all of the guitar parts myself. - Nails
