During the '90s a teenage Hagop, who prefers to go by his first name, played guitar in grunge band Symposium, opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica as well as playing Warped Tour before splitting. He then embraced the club culture in his native London, working as a tour manager for both Hot Chip and Four Tet.

The artwork for Bolts was curated by music and skate photographer Atiba Jefferson. In a statement Hagop said it is "a crazy dream to be able to work with someone who provided so much of the inspiration throughout my life."
