Speaking about the songs, frontman Alexis “Lex” Mincolla says:
“We were in the middle of an 8-week summer tour when Jason ( the director ) hit me up on twitter basically asking if we’d be interested in working on some music for his new movie. I thought his last film Deathgasm was super fun and when he told me the plot and showed me some scenes for Guns Akimbo I was immediately interested. He then told me the cover songs it would be which made me a little skeptical and then told me we basically had like 10 days to turn in masters which was pretty daunting because we literally had 1 day off on our tour schedule which landed 2 days before it needed to be turned in.
He continues: “I knew it was going to be nearly impossible but I said fuck it, we’ll make it happen. So after our show in Nashville, we spent a full 12 hour day at Southern Ground studios and didn’t leave till we had the tracks. I remember thinking to myself at one point, why fuck did I agree to this time frame and how badly everyone just wanted to sleep in on our day off but somehow someway it wall worked out and Jason and the producers loved the music. So the lesson learned here is, fuck days off.”
