First full album since 2006's "an ersatz rebellion", featuring louder, meaner production and more imaginary soundtracks for a movie that will never be filmed. Recorded live to drive, no overdubs or fixing of previous tracks- if it worked, it worked, if not, the entire song hit the trash.

No synthesizers, just guitar, bass, and a pile of vintage effects covering the transition from analog to digital. Ah, the inappropriate things those units let you do - switching distortion type across individual circuits with an expression pedal to unpredictible results, trying to track multi-tap pitch shifting that couldn't track a whole note at 10 bpm and making them self-oscilate, and more.
