On August 27, 2008, the band posted a promotional poster for the single on their MySpace website.
Although not a promotional single for the third album (released almost a year before the album), the single was released as a charity stand-alone single on iTunes. The album version of it, however, does not feature the guest vocals of Anti-Flag's Justin Sane and Chris #2.
On September 2, 2008, on the Radio 1 Punk Show the song was played for the first time. The song came out on iTunes on September 15, 2008. The single was officially released in Europe on September 12, 2008, and was also released in Canada, the US and France on September 16, 2008, and Australia on September 20, 2008. On the week of September 27, it debuted at number 23 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart on downloads alone.
The song was featured on the soundtrack of the NHL 09 video game.
