When asked about the fans, CKY's Chad Ginsburg shared, "The Alliance is truly the lifeblood of CKY. The band and the Alliance have always operated as a unified entity, brought together by a relentless desire for forward-thinking individuality and progression. Just a general thanks to the worldwide CKY Alliance...you are truly one of a kind. Remain proud."
The 12-song compilation features a dozen unreleased, rare, and long out-of-print tracks culled from the historic past of a band that truly has done whatever they wanted for 15 years, without compromise. Drummer Jess Margera shared, "We picked a lot of the songs based on our fans' wishes. For instance, at CKY shows over the years, one of the most shouted-out requests has been 'Shippensburg,' which is a song we recorded in 1997 for a skateboarding video. And by far the most requested songs on the Internet over the years have been 'To All of You,' the acoustic version and the heavy recording of 'Halfway House'. We wanted to properly mix and master these out-of-print songs and get them back out there and also record some of the stuff people have been asking us to do for over a decade." The complete track listing features: "Afterworld;" "Rio Bravo" (radio session); "Shippensburg;" "Halfway House;" "Chad's In Hi-Fi;" "Santa's Coming;" "Fat f***;" "The Deepest Depths;" "Rio Bravo" (Remix); "Don't Hold Your Breath" (acoustic); "Halfway House" (original version); and "To All of You" (acoustic).
