Laun, formerly a member of the now-defunct local band Challenge Club, wrote all of the songs for the forthcoming full-length album. Some of the material was written in the past while Laun was with other bands and is now finally seeing the light of day, Laun said.

"When I started it, I thought of it as my all-star group of songs," Laun said. "If I feel like we need to add a new song to the set list and I don't have anything that I like, I'll go back to the past."
