Here is the official statement about the release:

Part of the problem with doing a “tribute” record is the inevitable comparison to the original recordings and the need to live up to the band’s legacy. So let’s get one thing straight: “Carry the Torch” is not a Kid Dynamite record. This record will never be as good as the first time you heard Kid Dynamite at the Manville Elks Lodgeand will probably not stir another reunion at the Church. What it is, is an affirmation of the profound effect of Kid Dynamite to current hardcore punk bands worldwide, even years after their breakup. Our hopes are that listening to this album will take you back so that you recall the feelings you did get from the initial listen to your first Kid Dynamite song. This is the bands way of saying thanks for influencing them to start bands and play music.
