Brian McTernan, singer of BATTERY and producer at Salad Days Studio wrote about the artwork for the record:
“I wanted to thank Jeffrey Everett (of Rockets are Red Design) who did the artwork for this record. He has always been one of my favorite artists, and a dear friend of my brother’s, but we had never met. He is stunningly talented, and an amazing person. Jeff also asked that his fee be paid directly to The Center for Infant and Child Loss, where the proceeds of the record will be donated. I sincerely can not thank him enough.”
