Fits is White Denim's second LP on European label Full Time Hobby Records,[12] following up the critically acclaimed releases of 2008's EU debut Workout Holiday and US debut Exposion.[13] The band's third full-length album was released in Europe on June 22, 2009, and was released in the United States on October 20, 2009 on Downtown Records.[14][15]

Prior to the album's release, on April 24, 2009, NME posted the song "Mirrored and Reverse" on their website, giving fans their first taste of Fits.[16] On June 8, 2009, Dallas-based music blog Gorilla vs. Bear released the song "I Start To Run."[17] A week before the album's official release, NME allowed readers to stream the entire album via their website.[18]
