This effort is the bands second recording helmed by Billy Hume producer for Ying Yang Twins, and Dan Hannon producer for Manchester Orchestra. With these two gentlemen working with the band, the out come is a blend of a gritty to slick, loud sounding machine. Fred Mills of Blurt magazine explains it best, “The experience live is a big bold sound, and it’s not for the timid, either.
