Gold Plated is for everyone who wanted to see the best in something, whether that be themselves, a relationship, a profession, or so on. It’s for everyone who’s found themselves struggling between expectations and reality. It’s for everyone who’s learned that painting something gold doesn’t change the material underneath. Most importantly it’s for everyone who’s learning to be honest with themselves. Gold was never made for us, and that’s not such a bad thing.
We’d like to thank our friends, family, and our fans who’ve shown us nothing but love and support since the beginning when we sucked. Whether that’s through seeing us live, picking up a CD, or allowing us to make noise in your living spaces, you’re what allows us to keep doing what we love. We’d also like to thank everyone who’s come in and out of our lives during the process and helped shape what this album has become. We’d like to thank Mike Jannino for the endless hours spent recording, editing, mentoring, and being there for us in our best and worst moments. Connor would personally like to thank Meg for being so supportive of us and Fabs would personally like to thank the one and only JayLeigh223 for her constant love and support. “Jess, this is just the life we ordered. I love ya, punk.”
