This was our first time ever recording with our new guitar player, James, in the band. The entire song writing and recording session was truly a breeze with him. This record was by far the most "collaborative" effort and I think it shows as this is (IMO) the strongest Coke Bust recorded material yet. We were approached by Vaccine a year prior in the summer of 2011 about doing a split 7". We were fresh off of Degradation and thought it would be a cool idea to do a split with a like-minded but also somewhat different band. Vaccine made total sense and fit that mission. Refuse Records in Europe was an obvious choice, having already worked on the Degradation EP together. Grave Mistake was hesitant about taking on a split 7" of any kind (hey, lots of people don't like the format... it's cool), but Drugged Conscience was eager to take on the project. Chris Donaldson had been a friend for years so it just made sense working with him. This record came out just in time (down to the last day, actually) for our six week European tour. We sold a million of these things on the road. The two versions have different artwork.
