"We recorded this project in late August 2020, still in the middle of the 'unknown' and dreadfully missing the connection of an audience and the one of a kind feeling of playing live," said Dawson. "This was the first time my band and I had played these songs since we finished recording them earlier that year and was the first time I had really sang in months. The first time I got to have a taste of the 'live show feeling' that I had probably taken for granted. I'm so glad we got to immortalize this moment.

He makes that crystal clear on the cover where he stands flanked by his backing quintet, looking tough, menacing, ready for a rumble with arms hanging down, hiding behind sunglasses.
