"We're really excited at this new album that's coming out," said Brock Ebina-Doma, lead guitarist and keyboardist for the band, as well as the team's punter. "We worked really hard to get this project going and everyone's gonna love listening to our pieces."

"Finally, we can say that we recorded an LP for all of Australia to check  out," said Kent Age Reynolds, the leader of the group, main vocalist and bassist. "We wanted to pay homage to our home town and remember everyone from our younger days, the parents we learned from, and the lessons we keep. We were all raised in the streets of Launceston."
