was produced by Neal Avron, whose resumé includes Rock acts such as Linkin Park and Disturbed as well as Pop stars like Sara Bareilles. Speaking to us in a 2012 interview, Stephen Christian
described Avron as "a mathematician," adding "he is a genius when it comes to songwriting, and so the fact is we just learned from him." According to Christian, Anberlin had "never, ever worked harder on a record than we did with Neal Avron. It was grueling, it was tedious, but it was so stretching and pushing that we felt like it propelled us as songwriters and musicians."
