This band would not be possible or anywhere near as enjoyable without the following people and all their help. We really appreciate all of the support everyone has given us, and we hope we can give something back and offer our support as much as humanly possible. I'm sure there are tons of people who are missing from this list--everyone who has given us a show, a place to stay, played with us, hung out, etc.--thank you very much also.
Brennan Moss and Michael Talley - Recorded Tyrant, Peasant, our side of the Haarp split, and the bookend tracks on the Leech split in their apartment above the Northgate Taverne in Baton Rouge.
James Whitten - Recorded just about everything else in his apartment in Oakland, in our old practice space on Rendon, and at the Living Room in Algiers. He mastered a pile of stuff as well. Did sound for us at Scion Fest, etc. Great pal. I cannot stress enough how much we love working with him when recording. Make use of his talents.
