Terry Corso commented:
“We live in this wait-and-watch world at the moment. So I think this online performance at the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood is going to be an experiment in what could be the new norm. Everyone is having to get creative and outside the box as far as facilitating material to fans. I think this is a pretty intriguing situation, and I’m excited at the notion of playing one show that people all over the planet can participate in.”
“Next for the band is working with our new label partner Megaforce Records to get this new record out ASAP. Getting back on the road would be great. Maybe even keep developing our drink line with Packinghouse Brewing Co. We’ve been trying to write music during the lockdown. Suddenly, everything now is about video, so there’s a lot of that going on… front yard golfing, home projects, keeping loved ones safe and trying not to go crazier than we already are, etc..”

Andy Biersack commented:
“We are so excited to have the opportunity to revisit and reimagine our debut album for its 10 year anniversary. A decade ago I was just a teenager trying to find my way and meet like minded musicians, I was fortunate enough to meet Jake and Jinxx and we clicked instantly. I can remember writing so many of these songs in the tiny Hollywood apartment Jake and I shared and tracking our own demos, so to have the opportunity to take a look at these songs again and update them for the modern era of the band with Jake at the helm producing and mixing is a full circle moment for us.
We have never been happier as a band then in the current lineup and it’s amazing to get the chance to start over and do with this record what we always wished we could have done the first time around. This isn’t meant to be a replacement for the original album but rather a companion piece that we hope fans can enjoy and see the musical evolution of the band in a unique way.”
