Most of the album was tracked in an old, abandoned machine shop in Inglewood during September 13-16, 2012. Engines dangled from the roof, there was a thick layer of grime on the floor, Ford Fiestas were in the process of being prepared for a race and the band filled the space with radical sounds. Professional photographer Allison Seto stopped by and took some photos.

On May 16, 2013 the band put the finishing touches on the record with a little help from their friends…

Matt brought his RV and we used it as the location to record gang vocals with Pilot Audio‘s mobile recording truck in the Village Brewery parking lot.

Would you believe we fit the likes of ChronGoblin’s Josh Sandulak, The D’s Philly Roach, The Dudes’ Bob Quaschnick, ProHab’s Lindsay Shedden, Bad Portraits’ Mandy Stobo, FFWD’s Chelsey Parker, motorcycle stuntman John Christian Fraser, our favorite sisters Kelly Mandeville & Jodi O’Grady, Calgary Folk Music Festival’s Sara Leishman, CP wife Lorna Baird, and the first and truest Yancy of them all, Yancy Espinoza, in one vehicle with a microphone?! Not to mention the boys of Cowpuncher!
