"We have always talked about wanting to do a covers record, and we are excited to finally release one. We always try to include cover songs in our live show, so it was nothing new for the band, and working through the songs was fairly easy. We tried to put our own take on the songs, but while retaining the melody and other musical sections from the original songs. The song selection is intentionally all over the map, hopefully there is something for everyone. A few of the songs are 80s throwbacks, several are influential songs that we love, and some are just meant to be funny. Many of the songs that we chose to record are songs that we have played live over the past few years such as 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun', 'Surf Wax America', 'Crazy'. We had a lot of fun recording and putting these songs together, and I am really happy with how everything turned out."
