As the five members of Bleach entered the studio in April to create their fifth album, their plan was to compose a positive themed project as a follow-up to their previous release, “Again for the First Time” (August 2002). But being faced with studio deadlines, and a lack of inspiration for song writing, Bleach was forced to rush their efforts along in order to complete them. And the end result, at the puzzlement of the band, was an album a bit darker than what they had originally intended.

In the months that passed from that recording to the completion of their final mastered cd, the lives of the Bleach members took a drastic alteration. On July 23, 2003, Captain Josh Byers, brother to Jared and Milam Byers, both members of the band, was killed while in the act of service in Iraq. To anyone who had ever experienced a conversation with any of the Bleach members, they would have been informed in great detail and passion about Josh’s heroic feats in battle, his support for the band, and love for life. It was no surprise then, that the loss was a profound one, not only for the brothers, but for entire the band as well.

As the realization of their loss sank in and their grieving process began, the songs that they had written in a studio rush suddenly became their comfort. Just a day before they were told of Josh’s death, they had received final mastered copies of the cd that they had already declared they would dedicate to their heroic brother. And in those songs was an eery, yet comforting foreshadowing of the events that they, back then, would not have believed.
