Koyo vocalist Joseph Chiaramonte commented:

“We really slow-cooked this record. There are songs on it that go back as far as being written just after Painting Words Into Lines came out. Even as we were writing for Drives Out East, we knew certain songs had to be allocated for certain things. We’d just keep them in the bank and develop them over time.”

01 – “51st State
02 – “You’re On The List (Minus One)
03 – “Life’s A Pill
04 – “I Might Not
05 – “Flatline Afternoon” (feat. Anthony DiDio)
