“This record has been a work in progress for two years,” Kenny Byles says. “For us to finally release it and let it be a part of the world is a huge accomplishment for us. This record touches on heavy topics that normally people wouldn’t want to talk about. Sometimes things that you think are great aren’t always so great, but that’s okay. We hope everyone enjoys it, and thank you so much for listening.”
