SPACESHIPS would like to thank:
UpState, the Well, Riverlights Music Festival, Option 5 FX, MAKE SOUTH BEND, Eco Owl Press, the Birdsell Project, Chorus of One Records, and all the people making South Bend a thriving creative community.
Also, a huge thank you to those who made this pressing possible: Chris Arrowsmith, Brenden Bell, John Cotton, Janiece FitzGerald, Nate Heldman, Calvin Johnson, Daniel Johnson, Cody Noble, Lyndon and Anne Tschetter, and Tim Yerrington.
Ben thanks: God, Christ, and Spirit for faithfulness. Danie and our love, Nat and Joel for the blessed rock, Mom and Dad and their unwavering support, Daniel my musical brother, Caleb and his coolness, Scott and his encouraging humble greatness, Tim and his tender heart, Eric my long lost brother.
Joel thanks: the homies at Upstate. I'm humbled and grateful to have worked with a team of brilliant minds who love what they do and the city that they do it for. Also a special shout out to my band mates Nat and Benjamin. Especially Nat for inviting to me to hop on board with SPACESHIPS. I'm stoked to see where the future leads us, as homies as well as a band
Nat thanks: my beautiful wife Michelle for taking risks and loving well. My wonderful family for their support and honest criticism. My Northpoint Vineyard family for being the best church I could ever be a part of. Everybody coming out to shows and showing their support. Josh Sabo for the kick in the pants to take this more seriously. All the people I've had the honor of playing music with: my brothers in Dad Jokes, anybody who's played in my house, and especially Ben and Joel for driving me to be a better musician and helping me put legs on the crazy ideas in my head.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
