Don Van Stavern stated:
"When I decided to keep Riot going it was a very emotional time for Mike and I. Mark Reale was not only a founding member, a great musician and a mentor but a best friend to me and I vowed to him and his family that I would keep the Legacy moving forward. Riot's 16th record drops tomorrow and I am beyond proud to move forward in this legacy of a band that I once listened to on the way to high school and was once a fan of and now I'm a member of. Some people follow, some don't. I grew up listening to Joe Anthony in San Antonio and vowed top keep the music alive. This is my 5th record with Riot! Thank you for all the believers including Markus Wosgien at Nuclear Blast! We do this with the utmost respect for the legacy of the band. Thank you again and Shine On!"
