The album marked a change in direction sonically for Stern, enlisting a producer, Nicholas Vernhes, for the first time, as well as getting Oneida's Kid Millions in on the drums. In our interview last week, Stern said: "Everything I chose was meant to change the direction a little bit. Zach [Hill, previous drummer, now playing with Death Grips] and I had pretty similar tastes so that we would agree on most stuff. So, getting Nicholas was a big deal because I had never worked with a producer. Also, I was trying to get better with conflict and saying 'no' when I don’t like things. On my first or second record, even if I was completely dissatisfied I would have gone along with things, just because that is my nature. As it was my fourth, I argued with everybody in there. Even though I wanted to change, I had this feeling in my stomach about whether it was a good idea."
