Aaron: Thank you to my parents, Jeremy and the rest of the Dominguez family, Dayton Ohio Straight Edge, Alex Nida for always give us a place to stay, the random people that I've meet at shows, especially those in other states or those who have helped the band in some way shape or form.

Adam: I want to thank my mom for always supporting me endlessly and dearly, Eli and Tom for always believing in me and being the best friends they could be, without them I wouldn't have got here today, Q for being a good dude and a great friend, Omega Enclosures, all the bands I've ever played with, and I want to thank last but not least Grim State for being such good dudes to work with and to be apart of something great with

Nate: I want to thank my mom and my dad, they never really wanted this to be my main priority but they came to realize that they can't change my mind, so they have been there for me for everything I have done musically, want to thank my beautiful girlfriend, Madison Wells, for putting up with all of the shows/recording/practices, and all of my friends who have been to shows just to watch us play the same old sets

Band: U-Haul, Tweak Media, Rockstar Pro Arena, Recreate, The Livery for allowing tons of bands to practice in a way too nice of a place, All of our friends in current and past bands from Ohio, Bobby Kirkendall, Steve Blair from Witness, Chris Alsip, Shaun and Dustie at FM Records, Fez or anyone who's been our merch person, Zeuss at Planet Z Studios, Bobby Leonard at Paper Tiger, the Attic and staff for always supporting us and helpings us out, all the past members, anyone who's been a supporter of the band, came to a show, bought merch or just been there to help out
