The new version of “Leveler” will feature alternate solos and tunings and was produced and mixed by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (ERRA, Rivers Of Nihil). Will Putney (Every Time I Die, Body Count) handled the mastering of the vinyl pressing.

The band’s lead guitarist JB Brubaker commented:

“‘Leveler‘ is a record we’ve always been proud of, and we wanted to do something special for its ten-year anniversary. We’ve done some cool remix projects for previous albums when they’ve turned 10, but with ‘Leveler‘, we decided to kick things up a notch. COVID has kept us off the road for such a long time that we found ourselves with a rare opportunity to take on this unique project.

We dove into this record and dissected the songs, rewriting solos, changing the tunings, adding new textures and elements, and got a few of our friends to do some guest spots as well. Our longtime producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland handled the recording/mixing and helped us take ‘Leveler‘ to new sonic heights. I think this is the best-sounding ABR record we’ve ever made, and it’s going to allow people to experience the record in a whole new way. I can’t wait to share this with everyone.”
