On Red Vinyl IIn 2008, Dave and lead guitarist Sam Williams, began to get the DBL itch again and decided to lay down a couple of new tracks and see where it might take them. Both members were inspired by the music and positive fan feedback they received as the news about their recording sessions spread. So excited, in fact, that less than a year later, the band reformed and embarked on their first tour since 2003, where they played shows in South America and the United States. They followed that up with a visit to the Netherlands and several other one-off shows. In early 2012, Down By Law signed a new contract with DC-Jam Records and entered a Tampa, Florida recording studio in a quest to finish the album that Dave and Sam began work on in 2008. The completed 16-song record was remixed by Smalleys old friend and bandmate, Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag),and then forwarded on to L.A. based D.O.B. Sound where it was mastered by Derek OBrien (Social Distortion, Adolescents).
