The album again features core members Ron Jarzombek on guitar, Bobby Jarzombek on drums, and Pete Perez on bass alongside a plethora of guest musicians. They include Jarzombek's Watchtower band mates Jason McMaster and Doug Keyser, Daniel Gildenlöw of Pain of Salvation, Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth), Michael Manring, Sean Malone (Cynic, Gordian Knot), Ray Riendeau (Halford, Machines of Loving Grace), Jeff Eber (Dysrhythmia), and Jens Johansson (Stratovarius, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), among others.

Ink Compatible was released worldwide via Ron Jarzombek's EclecticElectric label, except for Japan and Southeast Asia where it was released by Avalon/Marquee.[1] It was released in Russia on Iron d.[citation needed]
