Singer Jack quotes: "This song is dedicated to all the misfits with a heart of gold out there struggling to find the balance between their natural fragile goodness and the heavy evil armor that life forced them to wear. I always preferred to surround myself with people who live & breathe the grey shades of life, accepting all natures of the human soul, and when these people come together there's a magic that's beyond compare. Put some gold in your scars, cry, laugh, scream, get angry, dance, join a fight, and love at the highest volume". 

The single digital art has been designed by Veronica Anacleti & SoloMacello (Black Veil Brides, Nick Oliveri, Elvenking, Band Of Spice, Valient Thorr), while the official video has been directed by Filippo Cinotti.

In this project Mika writes all the songs and lyrics, and plays all the drums, bass, keyboards and sings backing vocals, too.

All the lead vocals are sung and guitars are played by various extremely talented musicians from the rock/metal scene all over the world which this time include Robban Ernlund (Treat), Markku Kuikka (Agonizer, Kenziner, The Ragged Saints), Stefano Lionetti (Lionville), Mikey K Nilsson (Sapphire Eyes), Erkka Korhonen (Dark Sarah, Urban Tale)and Robbie LaBlanc (Blanc Faces)

Also the album’s post-production is made by top pros. The album is mixed by Erkka Korhonen (Dark Sarah, Urban Tale, Northern Kings, Ari Koivunen, Raskasta Joulua) and mastered by the legendary Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children of bodom, Stratovarius, HIM etc.). The album was produced and mostly recorded during 2019-2020 by Mika himself at his Groovehouse Studio in Vantaa, Finland.
