All songs on the album with the exception of "Day of Pigs" and "You're Still The One" were written by Reese Roper, Masaki Liu, and Ethan Luck. Because of the incomplete state of the band at the time of the album's release, the only current member appearing on the CD is Reese Roper. As a result, the album features many additional musicians such as Frank Lenz (Drums), Elijah Thomson (Bass), Phil Bennett (Organ), Bob Schiveley (Guitar), Masaki Liu (Guitar), Jason White (Additional Drums), Ethan Luck (Guitar), and many additional vocalists. The band has disbanded. Roper has issued a statement regarding the status of the band.
"What happened to Roper? Is it dead? - Yes. Roper was a project put together by 5minutewalk records. We had a falling out with them, and are too lazy to start over again. Everyone has real jobs now, and although we miss seeing you all, we are just going to let it die.
Unless you are a record company executive that wants to give us an enormous signing bonus and not make us tour"(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roper_%28band%29) 2. Irish metal act Roper, from Limerick City, which first appeared on the scene in 2002, are twins Brian O’Brien (guitar/vox) and Conor O’Brien (bass), Brian Meaney (drums) and Bryan Griffin (guitar). The band won the Miller Strat Band of the Year competition in 2005 and were finalists in the Whelan’s Brave New Stage 05. They were also considered by many to be the most entertaining act in the final of the 2006 National Student Music Awards. Roper, whose sound is rooted in metal but has traces of funk and groove, opened the first ever Irish date for Mudvayne with American Headcharge in June 2005 where guitarist Greg Tribett commented on how refreshing it was to have a good opening act for a change!
