"When we initially conceived this project, our objective was to give something to our fans amidst the inability to physically perform to a live audience," said guitarist Cameron Maynard. "As it turns out, we were so happy with the end result that we thought it would only be appropriate to release in a more tangible way.

We have always wanted to release a box set like this, and after seeing some original ideas for the art, we knew it had to be done.”

"Although the motivation for this project was born out of uncertainty and cancellations, the opportunity to perform and create the definitive musical artifact for this band's history became a silver lining," added keyboardist Eric Guenther.

"To me, this is years of work finally realized, and thanks to our fans' response, we were able to make this project timeless with a proper release. This is the best representation of The Contortionist to date, and to us, the recording that defines the identity of this band and how we sounded in the first 10+ years.
