This is how this tape went down: I had two weeks without any shows so I was all like: I need to use this time to MAKE MONEY. So I wrote one song every day. This was right around when Mikey Maybe put out his tape cassette (which is so hopelessly vogue right now (and furthermore: AFFORDABLE)) so I called up Mitch and I was all like: "Yo, Mitch, Yo, Mitch, yo yo yo yo yo, let's make fun of Mikey in the most complicated and profitable way possible." And so it was. The two of us released a mixtape on the SAME DAY at the SAME PLACE. And Mikey Maybe opened.
Now I've GOT MONEY, so this spinnie is for free.

I wanted to name this album Without This Fire but Playfight was a stronger title.
