The press release for this EP was perfectly aimed to grab attention. It name drops the fact the release features various alumni from Nine Inch Nails Josh Fresse and Chris Vrenna as well as being mixed by Sean Beavan (the EP itself was self-produced by WVM) who has also worked with Nine Inch Nails in the past.
