“When everything went down with my previous band, I had booked studio time with Ross Robinson,” Dave recalls. “When I got to the studio, Justin and Michael were there. Ross had called them to help out this singer/songwriter girl who was putting some music together and he wanted us to give it a more ‘alternative’ feel.
