The initial release date was for October 10 but the album was delayed so the production staff could better promote the album. It was released on October 17, 2007 through Epic Records Japan. There are two versions, a standard edition and a limited edition, the latter containing a DVD of music videos and live performances. The album features their three previous singles, as well as a remix of b-side, "Lost Reason" featuring Micro of Home Made Kazoku.
