This is the first album where former drummer Brandon Proff does not provide artwork and also the first album not to have some form of skyscrapers on the cover. Instead, David Bell who directed the music video for "Taking Cassandra to the End of the World Party" provides artwork. Also, this is the first album where the majority of the lyrics are written by the lead vocalist, David Marion. On previous albums, the lead guitarist and back up vocalist Adam Rupert Fisher wrote the majority of the lyrics.
