Note for 2020: Piehead record no longer exists, and we suspect some of the other companies referenced in the liner notes may not exist anymore either. Still, we are very grateful to have been part of Piehead, so thanks to Greg and Sheryl for all that they did. You can see what they're up to these days at stainedproductions.com.
