Two songs feature contributions from long-time Weezer collaborator Pat Finn.

According to the Collectors Discography, 500 copies were pressed onto CD and a limited run of 150 numbered copies were pressed to vinyl, alongide 50 un-numbered "promo" copies sent to radio stations and friends, and 5 test pressings. The CD was also released through the music distribution platform CDBaby, and the album was available on digial music platforms.
