Resignation Day (2008)
This album had quite the journey to its final form. It was recorded in September 2007, but then we ran out of time and had to do the vocals at Nick’s house. That took a good three months, on and off. We returned to the studio in early 2008 to mix, but already had blown through most of our budget and had to move quickly. Then, for reasons I don’t even remember, it was delayed for months and months before finally coming out on Go Kart in August 2008. Fast forward a year and a half and we decide to try to correct the subpar sound, enlisting Jacques Wait to remix and remaster it. Voila— in October 2010, a full three years after we started, the final, remixed version came out on Fat Wreck. Whew!
The remixed album includes two bonus songs that we recorded in early 2007, which were originally released on a split 7″ with our pals The Monikers.
