Sam Pura served as produce and engineer with assistance from Tyler Shane Rodriquez, Karl Dicaire, and Ryan Ellery. The band's drummer Ryan Torf did additional engineering on the tracks. Eric Valentine mixed the recordings with assistance from Michael Carrey at Studio Topangadise in Topanga, California, before the album was mastered by Brian Gardner in Lake Arrowhead, California.[2]
