Cat wants to thanks
First of all I want to thank Kenny, my partner in both life and music, for all the time and passion he has invested in WATC.
A passion which has created many great things, and now this new amazing album!
I also want to thank Joni and Håkan, for being the crazy and funny people you are!
The four of us have so many great memories together- and more will come!
Last but not least I want to thank our daughter Decibelle for being such an amazing little spirit that fills our hearts with joy everyday!
Joni wants to thank
Supercell for making "Clash of Clans" - and my clan "Svea"!
I also want to thank my girlfriend Jenna for supporting me and not giving me too much shit about leaving her and our fat cat home while on tour!
Håkan wants to thank
Thank you Lina for all the support and love. And for understanding my weird priorities.
I’m nothing without you and our little boy. Thank you Kenny and Cat for writing awesome music and for letting me be a part of it. We ARE the Catalyst!
Kenny wants to thank
Mine and Cats Daughter Decibelle for just existing. She is the anchor in my life, and her spirit and genuine joy of life is what´s keeping me from drifting into darkness at times.
Cat, Joni and Håkan for putting up with my mood-swings and general bitterness while on tour.
Cat for putting up with me for so many years in general, and not giving up on me. I did not make it easy for you, and at times I am still not.
My other band Manimal; Samuel Nyman, Henrik Stenroos and André Holmqvist for making me feel so welcome and giving me a place with them even though I must be a pain in the ass sometimes due to my lack of time!
