By the time JVA was writing this album we had become pretty good at doing demos for albums. These handful span a couple years of being really tired of touring and being broke all the time. When you give something your very best shot for a period of years, you eventually get tired. By the time this album was in real production, Eric was living in Arizona and Colby had joined the band. Still, "Turn It Up" was slated as a possible track for "Hold On To This." "Tarantino" missed the release as well, even though its pretty good too. "Heart Condition was an ok song, but awfully repetitive, so we passed on that one but used the breakdown as the intro to the album. These demos were done at Plan C Recording which at the time was owned by Matty, Hova, and Marky Mark, and JVA routinely practiced upstairs in the loft.

The JV Allstars were a pop-punk band from Lincoln, Nebraska from 2000-2012. They started like any band does, by sucking. In time, they got a little better and had lots of fun and toured a lot and released a bunch of music. Thanks!
