The process of this record started very exciting> Despite the fact that predecessor @Tomorrow Come Today@ wasn-t the expected commercial break through there seemed to be interest and enthusiasm from Wind Up Records / a semi major label that Boysetsfire were signed to at the time. The band made lists of producers they would like to work with and studio time was booked. And than the whole thing fell apart. A sad and depressing truth unfolded> @Complete creative control@ means absolutly NOTHING if the record company is not giving you the green light to enter a studio and cover the massive costs of producing a full length album. The label just didn-t hear @the hit@ which is still absolutly puzzling given the fact that they had *now( fan favorites like @Empire@ or @Requiem@ presented to them. @The misery index> notes from the plague years@ will be available on vinyl through the bands very own End Hits Records for the very first time.
