Tyler Carter states: "I love these dudes. I think they have some genuine qualities and are def an authentic breed. They have heart and character and they put it behind their music and lyrics. We will give you this EP, but dont get comfortable, because just like everything i get involved with, music is meant for breaking boundaries. haha!"
MCMS vocalist Adam Ryan adds: "Going Into the studio with Grant, Carson, and Shawn was unreal. Never have I felt so comfortable in a studio. It wasn't just the studio; the producers had the same vision for our music, so that was rad. This is one of the reasons why I love having Tyler as a manager. He's been our very close friend for a few years now, and it was like he was watching over our shoulder until the time was right. The band have busted ass for the past 3 years to get to the point where, with the new music on the upcoming EP, Tyler finally latched on in a way to help further us. Not that he didn’t want to help before, but he knew we were better than what we were creating. He's always been supportive, but its like he was and still is never afraid to tell it like it is. If something of ours sucks, then it sucks and back to the drawing board to make something that is more than just sub-par for us. Tyler is like our big brother, because he's been through it all already and knows what to do and what not to do. He puts us in line when we make a mistake and commends the piss out of us when we do something awesome. It's a great relationship and I know it will show through the EP. I'm so excited to finally show everyone what we've been up to.”
