Delayed for nearly a decade, this is the sophomore LP by the JSE
After Mike Finnerty's departure from the band in 2007, the JSE (with Patric Valentine, Natalia McCarty and Alex "Nappy" Gonzalez) attempted to re-record certain songs and tried to recapture that early 00's atmosphere & nostalgia with little success.
As a result, two EPs of alternate versions were created (Co-Produced by Alexander Perez @ Brokenland Studios) and the JSE went back to the studio with the daunting task to rework and overdub on the basic tracks and scratch takes they had collected home-recording demos for this album from as far back as 2004.
Extra engineering and technical input by Jared Sochinsky and Shane O'Connor who graciously donated their time.
the physical version of this album features additional artwork by Just Dreadful
