The album is co-produced by members of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Collin Hegna and Rob Campanelle, featuring actual (Daniel Allaire and Matt Hollywood) and former (Jeffrey Davies and Miranda Lee Richards) members of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, members of the Dandy Warhols (Pete Holmstrom), Dead Skeletons (Ryan Van Kriedt) and Warlocks (Jason Anchondo). The album is mainly composed of.
