In a press release, guitarist Tad Kublar said, "I think this is a guitar heavy record. But I would NOT say this is a heavy guitar record. The main objective being not to make the same record as the one previous. I love "Boys and Girls" and "Stay Positive". But they have a very similar feel and sound."

My lucky sister gets to go, while as I am leaving Europe, they are coming. How ironic. Oh well, c'est la vie. I really want to go to the one in Harrisburg, PA. Appalachian Brewing Company sounds fun. Or the first one, in Ardsley- LIFE. It's so simple, so genius. I want to go to there.
