The album was released on True North Records . It contains a hidden track which is officially billed as a "mystery song"; it is in fact a revamped synthpop version of one of the band's first notable singles, "Record Body Count" (from 1991's Melville).
The first single from the album was "Marginalized". The second single, "The Tarleks", was loosely inspired by the characters of Herb and Lucille Tarlek from the 1970s sitcom WKRP in Cincinnati. Frank Bonner, who played Herb Tarlek, reprises that role in the video. Really.
As with most of the band's albums, songwriting is credited to varying combinations of the band members: Martin Tielli, Dave Bidini and Tim Vesely . (Wojewoda does not receive songwriting credit.) Songwriting credits for each track are listed next to the song title below.
