After the band's deal with Artemis ended, drummer Mike "Ollie" Oliver left the band. This left Smith and Stepp to write most of the album on their own without a drummer. By chance, they asked former member John Ensminger to show up to drum for them; Ensminger then became the drummer on the album, completing the lineup. The music on the Adultery is still credited to every member of the band, as each member had their own input, specifically Matt Rippetoe, whose name is listed on the album cover with the rest of the band. Todd explains this as making up for leaving him off of the credits of their last album, Committed to a Bright Future.

Supporting tour[edit]

In support of the album, DFD embarked on the "Conjugal Visitors Tour" with Bad Acid Trip and Tub Ring supporting. Keyboardist Jeff Siegel was absent from this tour; instead, his position was filled by Tim Swanson. Also, since the Rotten Records was a considerably smaller label than Atremis, the venues booked for the tour were far smaller. Morale among the band was rather low. The shrinking tour size and low morale factored considerably to the band's decision to disband following the tour.

Vinyl Release[edit]

For the band's 2011 reunion shows, the album was released on vinyl by Rotten Records. This press of the album is across two vinyl records and is limited to 1000 copies.
