The album debuted at number 75 on the U.S. Billboard 200 in mid-February, with about 13,000 copies sold.[1]

The band re-issued The Walking Wounded on July 22. Dubbed The Walking Wounded: Gold Edition, the re-issue includes a special edition CD/DVD. The CD/DVD also includes new packaging, an acoustic set filmed at Looney Tunes record store in Long Island, a behind the scenes documentary from the tour with The Starting Line (a teaser video can be found on their MySpace page), and music videos.
