First I want to thank my wife, Jenna, for balancing us out in every way. To our fans, thank you for letting me disappear and come back when I need to. You guys mean so much to me on a level that is difficult to explain. To Chris Woltman, for fighting for this record all the way through. To Pete Ganbarg and Brad Gibson. To Brandon Rike and Mark Eshleman for helping me tell the story. To Andrew Donoho. To Paul Meany, for adding life to the record. To Adam Hawkins, for mixing the whole thing. To the "Joseph 11" text thread, Dad, Mom, Zach, Tatum, Pepper, Madison, Will, Mia, and Jay.
Our fans make this whole thing worth it. Being in a new city every night feels like home with you. Thanks for everything. Thanks to my parents, Bill and Laura Dun for raising me the way you did. Thanks to my siblings Ashley, Jordan and Abbie for shaping me and always being there for me no matter what. I look up to you guys. Thanks to Father John, the hardest working drum tech in the studio and on the road, and thanks to Darrell Thorp for getting these drums to sound the way they do on this album.
