When this cover idea surfaced we didn’t feel like covering the bands we grew up on. Most of them are still around or reunited. It seemed much more interesting to go back some more generations and find early punk songs with a modern melodic vibe to them. The rhythm section was recorded live and we kept dubs and edits to a minimum. This is as raw/unpolished as we get in the studio! The cover artwork consists of the four original designs converted to let you know it’s us.
