This is the first album to be released by the group as a four-piece band. The former second guitarist, John Martinez, left A Static Lullaby on good terms and was not replaced. This is also the first album with new drummer, Tyler Mahurin. The band has been playing three songs off the record on their Party Star tour: "Rattlesnake!", "The Pledge", and "The Prestige".
During a live interview on the website Stickam (a website for those with webcams) before the release of the album their current bassist Dane Poppin (who recorded on the album) was said to be replaced by a name from a fictitious band called Rattlesnake. The band said that the album was named after the band and that the bassist from Rattlesnake (who appeared in the interview) was to fill in for a while. Halfway through the interview the band revealed that they had pranked all those watching. Dane was wearing a fake mustache, playing the part of the fake Rattlesnake bassist and the band also admitted that they made up Rattlesnake. The band also admitted that it would be funny if they learned of Britney Spears having heard their cover of Toxic.
