The music was co-produced and mixed by Navene Koperweis and additional mixing by Jamie King. This new record also features guest vocals by Devin Townsend and Jake Troth.

Tommy Rogers: "With Velcro Kid I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and channel a part of me that I haven't explored yet. Taking a more electronic stance was a very natural evolution for me at this moment. The outcome was something I never would have imagined and I'm very excited for the world to hear what's been in my head for the last couple of years. I'm more than fortunate to have Navene work with me on this music and have some amazing collaborations on a few of the tracks. This is my next chapter, and I'm already looking forward to where my music will go in the future. As always, thanks for listening."

Hows about he worries more about making another good BTBAM album instead of mediocre solo output?

Holy shit this is bad. Why is he acting like this is anything new? He does this every few years and it's always terrible. Sad

Kids that listen to ICP are stoked! This post proves that if you are in a somewhat known band, you can put out complete garbage in a solo project. Seriously, this sounds like dudes in their 40's wearing overalls and facepaint playing in a shitty shack in the middle of Alabama! Still love BTBAM though.

Embarrassed for him on this. It's gonna be real hard for this guy when his music career dries up and he has to get a real job.

Tony brummel lost his shit when he put out that Giles album back when just being on victory OR being associated to a popular band could sell 30k easy. It was so bad nobody wanted to touch it. ALSO does jamie king still record in his parents basement

Too bad Tommy Rogers has more talent in his pinky toe than any of you idiots in here will ever have. Every kid on this site is a douchebag keyboard warrior who trashed on bands cause they are upset they never did anything significant in their lives. Tommys "Shitty" album is greater than anything you pieces of sh It will ever do. So why don't I little shitheads go back to whacking off in your mom's basement

I bet you ankle-biters think hash tags help raise awareness about idiotic new-age shit without actually doing anything to help, don't you?

Good for him, even though I don't care for it much.

Tommys "Shitty" album <--- Tommy comes to his own Aid as an anonymous keyboard warrior-don't get too upset Tommy, you'll spring a finger then how are you going to play your "Casio keyboard?"
