“The song selection is intentionally all over the map, hopefully there is something for everyone. A few of the songs are 80s throwbacks, several are influential songs that we love, and some are just meant to be funny. We had a lot of fun recording and putting these songs together, and I am really happy with how everything turned out” – says Matt Hoopes Relient K Guitarist and A&R for Mono Vs Stereo
