Smash The Statues started in 2003, playing hardcorepunk in the vein of Good Riddance, Strike Anywhere, I Spy and Propagandhi. September 2003 they released their demo, containing four raw hardcorepunk songs. This demo was well recieved in magazines and e-zines. With this demo, many shows were played and at the end of 2004, new tracks for a full length were written. These songs were recorded in Die Tonmeisterei in Oldenburg, Germany.
