Life Of Agony bassist Alan Robert commented:

“‘River Runs Red‘ was an album that helped so many people get through some really dark times. It was raw, heavy, and extremely emotional when it dropped back in ’93. We had no idea the impact it would have on that generation, let alone being able to see it have such longevity three decades later. It is a complete honor and full circle experience for us to celebrate this moment with our longtime friends Prong and Madball, who were both there in the very beginning of the band’s history.”
