PRODUCERS: Aaron Sprinkle, Trevor McNevan

A SPRINKLE OF FUN: Aaron Sprinkle and I produced [Welcome To The Masquerade with] additional production by TFK. We did the latest FM Static record together and had a blast, so we said, "Let's do it again!" -Trevor McNevan (vocalist/songwriter, TFK)
MASQUERADE THEME: The masquerade theme is referring to the masks that we all wear at certain places or times in our lives, and each song speaks to one of those things. -T.M.
THE MUSIC: Big, crunchy ADRENALINE rock! -T.M.
FOR LONGTIME FANS: I think this is the best record we've made; it's heavier. There are traces of our earlier material throughout this one. You'll hear it in things like more percussive vocals. We worked with Chris Carmichael on the strings for the first time; he was phenomenal. -T.M.
GUEST APPEARANCES: I had been chatting with Lacey [Mosley] from Flyleaf about a duet, but our record schedules got in the way. Pete Stewart from Grammatrain does a solo at the end of "Fire It Up." -T.M.
