Die Band kommentierte den Neuzugang so:
"Rick brings an excellent amount of experience to the lead vocalist position. The group has been a four-piece since its inception, so this is a new twist on things for us, adding in a fifth member.
Rick is the only singer that has ever walked into the studio and was prepared for his audition. We hooked up, ripped through several songs in short order, and afterwards, we knew that he was the one for the job."
