According to the band's website, Press was recorded in the basement of saxophonist Matt Knobbe's parents' house in late 1993. The album was first released independently in 1994 on the band's own label, NO Record Co., before being picked up and re-issued by Moon Ska Records later the same year. In 1997, when MU330 moved to Asian Man Records, Press was re-released with two additional tracks, both unrecorded Press-era songs recorded by the band's 1996 line-up.
Press was the only MU330 studio album to feature vocalist/trumpeter John Kavanaugh and saxophonist Matt Knobbe, who both left the band shortly afterwards. On December 31, 2011, the original Press-era line-up reunited at the Firebird club in St. Louis to perform the album in its entirety.
