Randy quoted "It sounded like something good to put our time and effort into for people who are less fortunate at the moment than us. Someday it's going to come around to you," he said. "You're going to need it and you hope other people are going to do the same for you."
Tonight marks the 1st night at Brett Hestla Production Studios in Orlando as LITUP records there 2 newest songs as singles. The band quotes "This is a new direction and a new era for us... we hope people love it as much as we do!"
