Within the first week of August 2013, the EP was first hinted at in an Instagram post where lead singer Matt Langston informed the public that the band was covering the hymn, "I Surrender All." On August 29, Langston revealed the album's cover art and release date (9.10.13) via Instagram and Tumblr. Later, on August 29, the band posted a hymn entitled "Turn Your Eyes" on their SoundCloud account. The band later renamed the posted hymn, "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus." On September 1, Matt Langston posted on his JellyroxTumblr blog about why the new EP was being created. Afterwords, the band proceeded to release two more hymns entitled "Come Thou Fount" and "Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus" via SoundCloud on September 3–4.
As expected, the EP debuted on iTunes and Amazon.com on September 10, 2013. Later on, the same day of the release, Matt Langston posted a "press release" of sorts for the EP on his blog. On September 13, Langston reported that the EP was having a great first week, release-wise.
On September 30, Matt Langston did a radio interview with Broken FM about the EP and further explained why the band decided to do a hymns EP in the first place.
