”This album is very special for a lot of reasons. Aside from it being our first label release, we also had help from some very special people. On ‘St. James’s Gate’, the credit for the incredible Celtic instrumentation goes to High Grade Pats and our friend Ken Osborne. We were happy to have their talents assist us on this track.

Also featured on this album is former MTV and VH1 personality Matt Pinfield who was kind enough to help us educate the masses by reading the definition of “punk” to open one of the songs. On that same tune, we had the honor and pleasure of having the helping hand of none other than Matthew Lillard (SLC Punk; Scooby Doo) to drive home that, it doesn’t matter who started punk; it’s music.” – CRIMSON RIOT
