The song was first played live on 6 December 2006 at a warm-up concert at The Ice Factory nightclub in Perth, Scotland and first aired on radio on The Rock Show on BBC Radio 1, on 9 January 2007. B-sides "Scared of Lots of Everything" and "I'm Behind You" were first performed live on 16 December 2005 on the last night of Biffy's four night run at Glasgow's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, a gig which showcased material that Biffy had written and recorded for the fourth album that at the time was due for release in the summer of 2006.
