It was released on both vinyl and CD on April 4, 1987 through Taiyo Records with the catalog number LEO 009.[2] The CD version had two bonus tracks, "Vacuum Dream" and "No-No-Boy". It was later remixed and re-released in 1990, excluding the two bonus tracks (see Hurry Up Mode (1990 Mix)).[3] "Moonlight" was later re-recorded again for their 1992 compilation album Koroshi no Shirabe: This Is Not Greatest Hits.
