Recently signed to Harvest, Bootstraps have remixed and remastered their eponymous album for re-release, showcasing a new chapter for the buzz band. The self-titled album was recorded by Skip Saylor after Sam Jaeger asked Beckett to write songs for his award-winning film Take Me Home. The band spent one day in the studio recording songs live, in an attempt to capture raw moments. The band's name is a play on the expression, 'pull yourself up by the bootstraps.'
