Renowned record producer Rob Cavallo originally signed the Dirty Heads to Warner Bros., but artistic differences led them to leave the label. The band managed to keep their master recordings after the separation, which made up the bulk of their debut album, 2008s Any Port in a Storm. The band then connected with producers Steve Fox and Stan Frazier to complete the album. The album featured appearances from legendary Beatles collaborator Billy Preston, Josh Freese, percussionist Alex Acuna, British Grammy nominated reggae singer and DJ Tippa Irie, and Indie 103.1 reggae host Native Wayne. The song Check the Level included guitarist Slash and heavy metal vocalist M. Shadows. The album was mixed by Beastie Boys producer Mario C, and Lewis Richards of 17th Street Recording.
