This compilation features songs and artwork from Gordon and Kelly’s friends, family, and favorite bands, as well as a few others who have lost someone close to them. Contributions are not just primarily from the Greater Boston area, but also Florida, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, and Quẽbec.

Pre-orders for the 2xLP and digital versions, as well as an exclusive tshirt, are now available exclusively through MerchNOW.
