In Nothing We Trust is Reuben's third studio album, released on 25 June 2007. It was mastered in February 2007 by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Engerica, Helmet) in New York. The album was recorded, produced and mixed at Livingstone Studios in London and Soul Valley Studios in Wimbledon by Sean Genockey (Engerica, Smother). The band uploaded short videos on YouTube for each day in the recording studio. These videos are on the band's DVD, What Happens in Aldershot Stays in Aldershot, and can also be seen on YouTube.
The album was the first to be released on Reuben's self-run label, Hideous Records. On 29 March 2007, the band revealed the first single from the album will be titled, "Blood, Bunny, Larkhall", due for release a week prior to the album.
In an interview on rockmidgets.com, singer Jamie noted that fans can expect "Long songs. Nice artwork [and] More funny long titles". In comparing INWT to its predecessor Very Fast Very Dangerous, the band expressed a clear preference for the new album, suggesting that it "feels more natural and raw sounding", with "more depth" compared to the "straightforward" sound of the 2005 album. More recently in Rock Sound Magazine Jamie admitted "we've had to let go and say 'Blatantly, it's our best one'."
On 18 May 2007, the finalized track list and cover artwork were revealed. On 17 July 2007, the band announced that the second single from the album would be "Deadly Lethal Ninja Assassin" to be released on 24 September.
