Singer Jesse Leach says of the band’s creative process on the mixtape:
… while I was writing the song, I didn’t really know what I was talking about. But [the show producers] give you a concept, they give you key words that you should use and sort of give you a storyline. And it was fun for me to work in that capacity, ’cause I’m used to just coming up with stuff on my own off the spot. And they had a lot of cool trigger words, so it was interesting to see that come together.

The mixtape itself is produced by Launch Point Records, and features 15 songs by various artists including Snoop Dogg, Method Man, and Anthrax. Each song includes samples from Ramin Djawadi’s Season 4 score.
