Big Heavy World recording artists CHAINSAWS AND CHILDREN and CHIN HO! bring destabilizing east coast tech-core and irresistible all-American pop to the project. Other artists appearing on the CD include PI GAMMA, LISA LASHAWN, DARREN FALCONE & THUNDERBOX, BEYOND CONTROL, VENESA, PAUL OSCHER, JENNA MUSIC, JARED DOUGLAS, BURNING CANDLES, UNDERCRUSH, THE PUSH, and the CLAYTON-HAMILTON JAZZ ORCHESTRA.
