On February 12, From First to Last released an exclusive 2-song CD through Hot Topic which featured the songs "We All Turn Back to Dust" and "I Once Was Lost, But Now Am Profound" from the band's then-upcoming album, the former of which was also released through Billboard.com. This release coincided with a Hot Topic in-store performance in Novi, Michigan on February 13. A limited quantity of the exclusive CD was available at the 2008 Take Action Tour. The song information from "We All Turn Back to Dust" revealed that the album would have 11 tracks.

Several songs off the album appeared in EA's FaceBreaker. The songs "Two As One", and "Worlds Away" are featured on the soundtracks of EA Sports games, NASCAR 09, NHL 09, and Madden NFL 09,[5] respectively.
