Paul Piss kindly expanded on the record's themes and artwork: “The cover is from a painting i'd done earlier in the year. I'd been mucking around with some messy portraits and abstract stuff using oils and oil pastels.

Batpiss will be appearing at the Brisbane Hotel in Hobart on Friday, August the 11th, and at Club 54 in Launceston on Saturday, August the 12th.
