about

decembers architects was Nathan Holtz, Timothy Cronin, Nathan Kinsella, Mark Swoverland and Jonathan Lundgren.

I don't even really remember how releasing this thing came about. They'd recorded it a million years ago, and I remember getting a copy from Tim whenever they'd finished it, which would probably have been sometime around 2001. Tim and Nate Holtz and I had just started our Everybell band, and at some point I must have asked about what they were planning on doing with it. I really freaked out about packaging it...I wanted to try to make that part as complicated and elaborate as the music. It might've been too much, because in the end, we really only ended up assembling about half of them. I guess that goes with the territory of a band that puts out a record five years after breaking up.
