Release and promotion
The band opinion on the release of the extended play was that: “We wanted to release something special as an add-on to Welcome Home Armageddon." The release is considered a "tie in" with the release of Welcome Home Armageddon on vinyl. The EP was announced on 28 September 2011, Funeral for a Friend announced that the EP would feature only one brand new track while the remainder of the tracks are acoustic renditions, live session recordings and remixes of tracks from Welcome Home Armageddon as well as a cover of hardcore punk band Strife. The release of the EP was accompanied by a UK tour by the band in October 2011 as well as a digital single of "High Castles" on 13 October 2011.
The ep received positive responses from contemporary critics. Kerrang! writer Alistair Lawrence gave the album a three 'K' out of five- indicating a 'Good' rating- and praised their combination of acoustic songs, a remix and a cover to prove they're still "brimming with enthusiasm and the seeds of new ideas". Chris Jefferies in an otherwise positive review of the record for Virgin Music criticised Matt Davies vocals on the final two acoustic songs saying that "There's no question that the frontman still has the range to pull off these songs, but without the full band backing, his vocals sound strained and completely lacking of the warmth that made earlier Funeral For A Friend records so touching."
All tracks written by Matthew Davies-Kreye, Kris Coombs-Roberts, Gavin Burrough, Richard Boucher and Ryan Richards.
