Worship the Glitch is the only album to be released by "ELpH vs. Coil", though an EP called Born Again Pagans is credited to "Coil vs. ELpH". ELpH is the name that Coil used to describe the random musical compositions that were generated from their own equipment, either by itself or as an unintended yet pleasant byproduct of their own work; as a result, this album can essentially count as a Coil album.

John Balance, Peter Christopherson and Drew McDowall are credited for creating Worship the Glitch. Leah Hirsig, wife of Aleister Crowley, appears on "Dark Start" and "Ended" singing the lyrics of the pop standard "For All We Know". "Mono" is a cover version of Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)", consisting of a heavily processed guitar solo.

The first 500 copies of the CD were a special edition, which included a reflective cover. The 2X10" vinyl format was released in an edition of 2,000 numbered copies. There were also forty copies released with handmade covers by Jhonn Balance; some painted and some assembled by collage, each signed and given a unique title. The vinyl version uses slightly different track indexing than its CD counterpart.

The vinyl has the following etchings:
Side A: IT NEVER HURTS...
Side B: UNLESS YOU CATCH YOUR FINGER IN IT.
Side C: ∞ TRANSMITTER
Side D: AUM GENERATOR
