"TEAM CYBERGEIST was never meant to be a live band," Angel previously said. "I always saw it as just a studio project. But through the years, people have been asking when I was going to do live shows. When writing songs, I collaborate with different musicians. Every song has different guests. I had no idea how I was going to pull it off live!"

After three years of being locked in the studio, Angel decided to bring some select musicians together to form the TEAM CYBERGEIST live band.

TEAM CYBERGEIST's video for the song "Justified" can be viewed below. According to a press release, "It is a look into the recording process of a brand new song off the upcoming full-length TEAM CYBERGEIST album, 'How To Destroy Something Beautiful'. The vocals [for the track] were recorded in Stockholm, Sweden; the bass in Ocala, Florida; the synths and programming in North Port, Florida; the guitar solo in Cleveland, Ohio; and the rest was recorded at Redline Recording Studio in Venice, Florida, where the song was mixed. This is an example on how TEAM CYBERGEIST works. Musicians from all around the world collaborating to create music through the Internet."

"Justified" features the following musicians:

* Angel Bartolotta (DOPE) - Production, Composition, Arranging, Programming, Drums, Samples, Synth, Keys, Guitar, Gang Vocals
* Lizette von Panajott - Vocals, Lyrics
* Jason Schmidt - Additional Production, Guitar, Gang Vocals
* BC Kochmit (DARK NEW DAY, SWITCHED) - Guitar Solo
* Sally Debauchery (PSYKILL) - Bass
